I am curious...is there:
Your question concerns me in so far as asset tagging should be applied judiciously following a schema that suits your environment. I highly recommend working with your technical account manager (TAM) for guidance building your tagging hierarchy in the most performant way.
Here are few resources available to you for use, at your convenience:
Don't worry I don't have to many...I was honestly curious Just popped in my head. My tagging is good, just thought I would ask.
Good to know, I feel better now
Still a useful bit of info to know...? Is there a performance hit beyond a certain limit?
I have lots of tags but most assets pick up around 22 each (Where auth scanning is done) - OS Tag, Specific software tag, specific vuln tag, location tag etc.....
I have noticed a delay in processing scan results from scan finish time, to results complete time (Circa 30+ minutes). Could this be down to the number of tags to be updated on the assets within that scan?
Thanks Chris. Took the words out of my mouth (was busy when the first replies came out). I have probably...100-150 tags of varying types. When do tags create performance problems, etc...I imagine there has to have been some testing around this issue before...if not, might be time to test
I have 1100+ ;-)
OK you got me curious to count mine...262 currently
As in any product TAGs which has to re-evaluate rules every time data comes into the platform, and the more rules/tags that have to be analyzed it's pretty straight forward to conclude performance is a factor. However, we do account for maintaining performance but true best practices and regular maintenance of TAGs should be accounted for and a methodology followed to avoid duplicate redundant tags.
All good points. I only have 1100+ due to the spread of physical locations and having over 500 different subnets ;-).
My assets average 10 tags for unauthenticated scans and 22 tags for authenticated scans.
I'm guessing that there is no indicator of where the number of tags will affect scan processing, as per John's curiosity (and mine) other than running comparisons with and without tags?
