I feel like this question may have been answered several times, but I just can’t find out where. When I go to queue up a scan, it seems to finish in just a few seconds. Here’s what I see in the logs:
libgvm boreas:MESSAGE:2021-07-28 23h42.19 utc:8207: Alive scan 85c9d71d-34fc-4340-8b7f-8726a06ca203 started: Target has 3840 hosts libgvm boreas:MESSAGE:2021-07-28 23h42.28 utc:8207: Alive scan 85c9d71d-34fc-4340-8b7f-8726a06ca203 finished in 9 seconds: 0 alive hosts of 3840. sd main:MESSAGE:2021-07-28 23h42.29 utc:8207: Vulnerability scan 85c9d71d-34fc-4340-8b7f-8726a06ca203 finished in 14 seconds: 0 alive hosts of 3840
However, if I trim this list down to maybe 30 systems, the scan takes much longer. Does this mean that there’s some kind of cap on the number of systems that can be provided to the scan or something?
Even if those systems aren’t active, how is it determining 3.8k systems aren’t active in just 14 seconds?
