How can we improve?

Agent performance throttling

LANguard agent should be capable of limiting certain 'counters' like CPU usage, memory usage and bandwidth usage per agent. In large environments and heavy used servers it is not always wanted to unwantedly share this much power to the agent. It finishes faster, but the drawback weighs heavier (some tell us 95% CPU and 500MB mem during a scan). In some cases the downloading of patches is also nicer if it could be limited.

    As Languard updates when he want (even with time limitations), it should be great to throttle, yes, totally agree

    100% agree with this improvement request. We need the ability to limit bandwidth usage for vulnerability checks and patch downloads.

    It would also be nice if we could restrict (throttle) the amount of bandwidth the agent uses for downloads and control when (time windows) updates should be downloaded.
