Info: Network load for Discovery


What is the network load for a Network Discovery job?  This depends on the discovery job definition.


More Information:

This depends greatly on how many ports are being scanned per IP address and how many endpoints will be scanned. One customer measured the following with Compuware Application Vantage. 

  • One port on one IP address will produce a load of about 396 bytes. 
  • One port across 25 IP addresses will be about 7 KB. 
  • One IP address with all ports will be about 12.2 MB.
