Understanding mapping, domains, and netblocks in large networks

I am new to qualys and I am trying to figure out how to use Domains and Netblocks with respect to mapping.  We have a single Active Directory domain (and namespace) that is used by a large number of subnets.  I would like to preform discovery on these networks but I am not sure how I am supposed to setup domains and netblocks in Qualys. 


What do domains mean to Qualys and how does Qualys use them?  Should I have a single domain, my.internal.domain and define every netblock used with it?  And then create individual maps only using certain netblocks?  I don't want to scan my entire domain all at once--I need to break it up into managable chunks.


I hope this makes sense and thanks for the help.
