The number of plugins is inconsistent with the number in scan config such as "Full and fast"



I install gvm-9:
The figure below is the total number of plugins I calculated,the number is 50979:

But I find that the number of plugins shown in scan config such as “Full and fast” is 49834:

I want to know why?


Hi, when choosing the category for a topic please try to have a look at the category description for each category first:

The current used category is/was (Description: About the Vulnerability Tests category) which is about vulnerability tests (the so called “NASL scripts”).

Your question is completely unrelated to the NASL script itself so i have moved this topic into the better fitting (Description: About the Source Edition (GSE) category).


Just remembered that the Manager had problems under certain situations while updating the internal nvti cache in the past (, which could be related to the seen differences. The backport to GVM-9 is pending:


Thanks,cfi. The openvas-manager-7.0 is being continuously updated. I see that openvas-manager-7.0 was released on March 29, 2018 more than a year from now, so when will openvas7.0.4 be released?


Unfortunately i don’t have any insights into the release process of GVM.


It’s likely but not set in stone that GVM 9 doesn’t get any further bugfix releases after we just released GVM 10.
