Freeze Windows

Agent freeze windows behave differently in Tenable.io and Nessus Manager.

In Tenable.io:

Freeze windows allow you to schedule times when Tenable.io suspends certain agent activities for all linked agents. This activity includes:

  • Receiving and applying software updates

Freeze windows do not prevent linked agents from:

  • Receiving plugin updates

  • Installing or executing agent scans

In Nessus Manager:

Freeze windows allow you to schedule times when Nessus Manager suspends certain agent activities for all linked agents. This activity includes:

  • Receiving and applying software updates

  • Receiving plugin updates

  • Installing or executing agent scans

To manage freeze windows, use the procedures described in the Nessus and Tenable.io user guides.
