Is there any way to change the frequency of full system scans? PSI seems to be hard-coded at one week intervals between full scans? I would would like to have an option setting that would allow me to configure the interval of full system scans. Personally, I prefer daily full system scans.

No, there is no scheduling option in PSI. After a scan next scan is automatically set 7 days later. You can, of course, manually start a scan at any time. I myself run a scan generally twice a week.

I also think we should be able to change the default setting.
I'm testing PSI whith CSI integration and the problem is that I want to see every day if my hosts are up-to-date.
With the default behaviour (1 full scan per week) the PSI results are updated to the CSI account every time a scan is performed ie once a week.
I want to install PSI on computers where users are logged in whith a limited account. So I need the PSI agent to perform a full scan every day so that I can see the results in the CSI GUI and this without any interaction of the users.
Is it possible to add this feature to the next stable release of PSI ?

@patvg ,

For a more complete response , perhaps you might wish to create a new thread in the CSI sub-forum and repeat your post to have their input .

I have no practical knowledge of the CSI , but perhaps (I think) you can set it up (using agents!?) to scan all the PC's you are interested in viewing on a more specific timetable than that of the PSI .

Hope that helps .

Anthony

Hi

I agree that users should be able to customize the scan interval to fit their needs.

I've reported this and will make sure our developers will look into this.

Thank you for your feedback

It's hard to tell at this point.
We have gotten TONS of feedback (Thank you!), and there is many things we want to do, and we just can't add all of it right away.
