View or Edit a Node

On Nessus Manager with clustering enabled, you can view the list of child nodes currently linked to the parent node. You can view details for a specific node, such as its status, IP address, number of linked agents, software information, and plugin set. If agents on the node are currently running a scan, a scan progress bar appears.

You can edit a node's name or the maximum number of agents that can be linked to the child node.
