View License Use

In Tenable Nessus Essentials, a Tenable Nessus Expert trials, or a Tenable Nessus Professional trial, you can check how many hosts you have scanned out of your license limit.

To view your license use:

  1. In the top navigation bar, click Settings.

    The About page appears.

  2. Click the License Utilization tab.

    Tenable Nessus shows hosts that currently count against your license limit and the following information:

    IPThe IP address of the host.
    NameThe hostname of the host, if available.
    First ScannedThe date Tenable Nessus first scanned the host for vulnerabilities, which is the date the host started counting towards your license.
    Last Scanned

    The number of days ago Tenable Nessus last scanned the host for vulnerabilities. If Tenable Nessus does not scan the host for 90 days, the host stops counting towards the license limit.
