You can schedule a scan to run daily or weekly.

Note: Only one schedule can be configured and is applicable to all the agents.

To configure a scan schedule:

  1. Go to Admin > Services.

  2. In the Services view, select the Endpoint Server service.
  3. Click and select > View > Config.
  4. Click the Scan Schedule tab.
    Scan schedule tab
  5. Click the Enable toggle switch to configure the scan.
  6. Select the Start Date.
  7. Select the recurrence interval - Daily or Weekly.

Note: The values entered are specific to the agent time zone.

  1. For a daily scan:
    • Select recurrence interval as Daily.
    • Specify the frequency of scan in days.
  2. For a weekly scan:
    • Select recurrence interval as Weekly.
    • Specify the frequency of scan in weeks.
    • Select the day of the week.
  3. Enter the start time of the scan.
  4. Set the CPU Maximum value using the slider. This ensures the CPU limit of the NetWitness Endpoint Agent. If the agents are running on the virtual machines, set the Virtual Machine Maximum value using the slider.
  5. Click Save to save the configuration.

Note: If an agent is not able to perform the scan at the scheduled time because the machine is powered off or agent service is stopped, the next scan is based on the time difference between the current time and the next scheduled scan time.
For example, if a scan is scheduled to run every Wednesday at 6 PM and the agent service has stopped before the scan start time, and if the service is up on Thursday 10 AM, the agent will wait for the system to be fully up and running and immediately run a scan.
But if the service is up on the following Monday at 1 PM, the scan will run on the following Wednesday at 6 PM.
