Number of background scanning threads

Number of background scanning threads   06 May 2021, 13:23


I understand that background scanning uses 1/10th of the number specified in the threads setting. Is there any other way to adjust this? I have a large IP space that I need to scan, and even using 500 threads (to get to 50 background threads), I'm still not able to hit every IP frequently enough. Any assistance you can provide is greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your feedback and suggestion. We have added a new setting that allows you specify a custom number of threads for background scanning. You can download the new builds here.

The new Max. threads setting is under Options - Browsing - Live Display:
