Scanning Process

A scan, whether automatic or manual depending on the policy selected at creation time, starts to run when the start date arrives. When the scan runs, a new scan result is formed under that scan. For periodic scans at every period (daily/weekly or monthly) a new scan result is formed. For one time scans only one scan result is formed. In order to reach these scan results Scan->Scan Results sub-menu should be clicked.
