Can anyone specify how much Network Bandwidth will be consumed by Continuous Monitoring module based on the rule sets.
I would like to know the specific impacts on above.
Continuous monitoring is not contious scanning.
It is an intelligent alerting platform with direct output in email and even CEF for SIEM integrations.
CM relies on data that comes to it from existing scans, scheduled scans, cloudAgent differential scan data submissions..
Hence, no additional bandwidth or impact is expected at all.
If you have Qualys cloudAgent deployed in your hosts that are put for continuous monitoring then it is good. If the scan results are coming from a scanner based scan then make sure your scan frequency aligns with your alerting frequency.
