parallel scan and time out
I define two scans by clicking "new scan", my questions is how to run the two scan in parallel?
how to set time out period to be 3 hours for audit? I find we can only set timeout for crawling. but I want to set for audit
how to schedule two scan in sequence? in case task one timeout for 3 hours, does task 2 start automatically?
Hi Afs, I’m assuming that you are talking about Burp Suite Professional, each task (scan) created from the dashboard runs on a separate thread, so if you create 2 tasks they should run in parallel. I would advise against running parallel scans against the same target, as it could impact the performance of the scans which would reduce the benefit of running the tasks concurrently.
You aren’t able to specify audit timeout configurations, however you can modify the optimization and issues reported settings in order to influence the duration of the Audit phase.
task 2 starts 10 minutes after the finish of task 1
My previous comment actually advises against running the two scans for the same website, can you explain why you wish to run concurrent scans against the same target?
This can be done using the ‘Scheduled Tasks’ section inside Project options > Misc, you will need to create the tasks, pause them and then schedule them to resume at certain times.
Burp Suite Professional is not intended to schedule automated scanning of Web Applications, Burp Suite Enterprise was created for that purpose, so you might find that more suitable to your requirements if you just want to perform automated scanning.
