This section describes how to configure the frequency of the default scan.

The default scan detects servers and platform services, typically using the process table or the Windows registry. Default scans are less resource-intensive than runtime scans. By default, an agent runs a default scan upon startup and every 15 minutes thereafter. To change the frequency:

Uncomment the autoinventory.defaultScan.interval.millis line in the agent.properties file, and set the desired value in milliseconds.

To prevent the agent from running default scans on the platform, uncomment the autoinventory.defaultScan.interval.millis parameter in the agent.properties file , and set it to -1, as follows:

autoinventory.defaultScan.interval.millis=-1
