Rebalance Nodes

Nessus Agents may become unevenly distributed across child nodes for various reasons (for example, when a child node is temporarily unavailable, was disabled, was deleted, or was recently added). When the imbalance passes a certain threshold, Nessus Manager gives you the option to rebalance child nodes.

When you rebalance child nodes, Nessus Agents get redistributed more evenly across child nodes within a cluster group. Nessus Agents unlink from an overloaded child node and relink to a child node with more availability.

To rebalance child nodes:

  1. In the top navigation bar, click Sensors.

    The Linked Agents page appears. By default, Linked Agents is selected in the left navigation menu and the Linked Agents tab is active.

  2. In the left navigation bar, click Agent Clustering.

    The Cluster Groups page appears.

  3. In the cluster groups table, click the row of a cluster group.
  4. In the upper-right corner of the page, click Rebalance Nodes.

    Nessus Manager rebalances the Nessus Agent distribution across child nodes.
