Scan for vulnerabilities
Run an on-demand or scheduled Inventory & Vulnerability scan to update the Vulnerabilities page.
If you have Software Inventory scans scheduled, they automatically change to Inventory & Vulnerability scans after you purchase the Vulnerability Assessment module. Your scheduled scan settings are retained and no further action is needed.
NOTICE - Running Inventory & Vulnerability scans on endpoints is expected to use up to 350MB of memory and 25-50% of the CPU. We recommend running this scan on endpoints during off hours for users. For our minimum hardware requirements, see System requirements for Nebula.
To run an on-demand scan for vulnerabilities, select the Scan Inventory & Vulnerability option from the action menu on the Endpoints page in Nebula. For more information, see Perform actions on endpoints in Nebula.
To create a scheduled scan for vulnerabilities, select the Scan Inventory & Vulnerability option for your schedule type in the Schedules page in Nebula. For more information, see Scheduled scans in Nebula.
