Scan /24 subnets results in lots of dead "assets". How to manage those hosts/ip's

I have been facing the same issue on an installation from sources on Debian-9. Unfortunately I have not been able to further investigate and was hoping to find a solution for it here.

Have you tried our community edition ? For everything else we can only give very limited support here :frowning:


No worries at all, I just wondered if I did something “different” that made this :slight_smile:
I’ll try to debug it some more, and perhaps put a low priority issue on gvmd at github.

The other day we passed 1k assets with results, so I must fix our api script that removes empty assets :smiley:

And It’s always nice to see a community that can discuss a problem without starting a rage match :smiley:
