Running an assessment

To get the results of an assessment, it must be run once it is created.

Assessments can run in a serial or parallel mode. If more than one assessment is scheduled to run, the queue can be viewed through the Guardium Job Queue report. See Viewing assessment results for more information on the results of an assessment.

You can optionally define and schedule an automated process for running of an assessment definition. The Audit Process finder panel is the starting point for creating or modifying an audit process schedule. create a schedule to automatically run your assessments by going to the Audit Process finder panel. See Compliance Workflow Automation for assistance in defining an audit process

Multi-thread Assessment

Guardium can run multiple vulnerability assessments in parallel to optimize the performance and utilization of the CPU. The number of threads that can run in parallel can be identified by multiplying the number of CPU cores in the machine by 2.

As an example, if there are 4 CPU cores, then 8 would be the maximum number of processes that can be defined and run concurrently. The cap limit, irrespective of the number of CPU cores, is 100.

To retrieve or define the concurrency limit, see Classification APIs.
