Click Download to download a .txt knowledge base file of the scan.

Scanners generate a KB while performing a scan. The KB records any plugin information shared between different scripts and hosts. In most cases, you only need to download the KB when Tenable Support requests it for support cases.

Scan DB

Click Download to download a .db file of the scan results.

The scan DB shows the scan's settings, plugin outputs, plugin audit trail, KB, and other attachments. In most cases, you only need to download the scan DB when Tenable Support requests it for support cases.

Note: In Tenable Vulnerability Management, scan DB data is only accessible for a 45-day period after the scan completes. After this period, you cannot download a scan DB for the given scan result.
