Understanding the vGW Series Introspection Scheduling Feature

The Introspection Scheduling tab in the vGW Security Design VM lets you define schedules to scan VMs.

To improve performance during peak periods, you can limit the number of concurrent scans by making a selection in the Max number of concurrent scans menu. We recommend running no more than two concurrent scans. To define a scan schedule, click Add, select options for this scan, and then click Save. See and Table 12.

Max scan duration

The length of time that the scan must not exceed. The max scan duration option can be used to ensure no scans occur out of a maintenance window. The vGW Series completes a scan in progress, but it will not begin subsequent scans in the list. Any pending scans are listed in the Scan Status tab. They resume when the next scheduled time occurs.

If unable to scan…

Next scheduled period to continue the scan at the next scheduled interval.

Next Day to continue the scan at the same time tomorrow.

To delete a schedule, select the schedule in the list and click Delete.
