Scan Performance Node

The Scan Performance node provides detailed information regarding procedures, such as crawling, attacks performed (e.g. SQL injection) and the time Acunetix 360 allocated for these procedures.

Acunetix 360 enables you to start scanning web applications immediately after selecting scan settings. You can configure the scan options to tweak your scan, which can affect the scan performance. (In addition, the network bandwidth among other factors, can also affect the scan performance.)

To enable you to examine these details, Acunetix 360 provides them in the Knowledge Base panel. You can view the Source, Execution Count, Total Elapsed, and Average to provide a clearer picture of the scan. You can examine how much Acunetix 360 spent on crawling or attacking, or SQL Injection, for example.

Once the scan is completed, all scan performance information is listed under the Scan Performance node in the Knowledge Base. You can access the same information in the Knowledge Base Report and Knowledge Base Tab.



Acunetix 360 forms Knowledge Base nodes based on its findings. The Scan Performance Node is listed for every scan.

For further information, see Knowledge Base Nodes.
