Setting Scan Speed
Scan Speed is the setting that determines the maximum number of requests the scanner will make of your site per second for any scan. WhiteHat Sentinel is production safe in part because our scanner is designed to send a request and wait for the response before sending another request, and because we allow you to determine the maximum number of requests that can be made per second (between 1 and 8). The default is 4 requests per second.
To edit the maximum scan speed, from the Sites tab under Assets, choose "Settings" and click on "Edit Settings." You will see the Edit Site Settings page, where you can adjust the scan speed or the site priority.
Use the dropdown list to select your preferred speed, and click on Save Changes.
