Is there any performance or benefit to use search list vs. filters from the report template?
I do not believe there is any performance difference either way.
Are you seeing any odd or unexpected behavior?
Bill, I didn't see any odd/unexpected behavior. But when trying to run a report against thousands of hosts, just try to get the best way to have better performance. And try to understand how filters works, does it tather all the findings data and then filter as it generate report? Or it will filter as it gather data? My understanding is the later is how search list works, which I suppose it should speed up the report process?
