Why is my scan showing as Queued?

When you request a scan, the scan request is queued till the next available scanner is available to handle the scan request. This generally takes less than a few minutes.

There is a limit of 1 simultaneous scan per scan target. This is done not to overwhelm the scan target with requests. So if you launch a web and a network scan on the same scan target, one of the scans will remain queued until the other finishes.
