What are some reasons that could affect scan times?

As we are using Qualys more and more we are trying to improve the efficiency of the scans and have created 2 asset groups. They are divided between workstations and servers. They both are assigned the same number of hosts, give or take +60 more on the workstations. The server scan finishes in about 4 hours while the workstation scan takes 15 hours. That's too long in my opinion. I have a feeling that the traffic is going between the firewall and this might be causing the extra time. Can someone provide some ideas or suggestions?


Thank you!
