Start or Cancel a Scan

There are several ways to start scans:

  • From the Data Source page, which is described here.
  • For offline (rescan) or realtime (continuous) scans, as detailed in Start Types of Scans.
  • If you have set up datazones, starting a scan, called reevaluation, is discussed in Data Zones.

To start a scan on the Data Source page:

  1. Open the data source whose resource you want to scan.
  2. On the right, for the required resource, click the checkbox in the Scan column.

A message appears in the upper right indicating that a scan has been initiated.

To cancel or kill a scan:

  1. Go the Scan Status page.
  2. Locate the scan you want to cancel.
  3. Click the cancel button.
