Host Age count

Hi,

We have set the value ‘7’ for “Host Aging Access Failures” under Model Maintenance on our scanning appliance. However we could see 1 Host(failed to get scanned for more than 7 scans) that has a age count of -10. Ideally this host should have been removed automatically after 7 failed scans. Correct?

Note: Host Aging Time limit is 10 days.

Regards,
Arun

No – this is not correct.

From the documentation here


By default, a Host node will be automatically destroyed, if BOTH of the following circumstances are fulfilled:

  • No update has been made in ten days from any of the IP addresses known for this host.
  • No update has been made in the last seven scans on the IP address currently being scanned.

Ageing will only happen for a Host when the old endpoint is scanned.
