Nessus Agents may become unevenly distributed across child nodes for a number of 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
To rebalance child nodes:
In the top navigation bar, click Sensors.
The Linked Agents page appears.
In the left navigation bar, click Agent Clustering.
The Cluster Groups page appears.
- In the cluster groups table, click the row of a cluster group.
In the upper-right corner of the page, click Rebalance Nodes.
Nessus Manager rebalances the Nessus Agent distribution across child nodes.
