Hi Guys


Do any of you know how the Qualys scanners allocated the IPs to be scanned in the asset group. So for example, we allocate 6 scanners to an asset group which contains 50 hosts, the scan job cancels even though we allocated 6 scanners and it only uses 2 scanners. 


How does the scanners allocate the IPs and how many hosts per scanner is allocated? I see a it varies from 20 to 24 but would be good to have an understanding of this and the number.
