Configuring Scan Interval

Configure the interval at which the agent collects data during scans for the assets associated with a configuration profile. The interval is the time lapse between the completion of the previous scan and the start of the next scan. Scan intervals are applied the next time the agent downloads the configuration profile.

To configure the scan interval, go to Agent Management > Configuration Profiles, and then edit an existing profile or create a new one.

Single manifest

If you are using a single manifest for an agent, go to the Scan Interval panel and then specify the interval in minutes after which the agent collects data. Specify a value between 240 minutes (4 hours) and 43200 minutes (30 days). Default is 240 minutes. The data collection interval you set in a single manifest is applicable to both vulnerability scans (VM) and policy compliance scans (PC, SCA).

Profile creation wizard - configure scan interval.

Split manifest

If you are using a split-manifest, you can set separate intervals for VM and PC. Go to the VM Scan Interval and PC Scan Interval panels to set separate data collection intervals for VM and PC. Specify values between 240 minutes (4 hours) and 43200 minutes (30 days). Default is 240 minutes.
