This article answers the following query: What is the maximum number of machines that can be scanned by GFI LanGuard?
GFI LanGuard can scan an IP range of up to 65,535 machines for network discovery. From these machines, a maximum of 15,000 machines found on the network will be scanned.
- When scanning a range of IPs larger than 65,535, only the first 65,535 will be considered. Any additional IPs will be ignored.
- It is not recommended to scan more than 2,000 machines in a single scan since the scan can take a long time to finish.
- A scan on a large number of machines will also generate extensive reports which will take a very long time to load.
