You can configure the hourly time slots when a security virtual appliance can run the scheduled scans on the guest virtual machines. You can also decide specific hourly slots when you do not want to run any scans.
Select the day and time as required to schedule scans. The blue square indicates the hourly slot when a scheduled scan can run, and the white square indicates the hourly slot when a scheduled scan cannot run. By default, scans are scheduled to run on weekdays from 12:00 midnight to 6:00 A.M., and 7:00 P.M. to 12:00 midnight. On weekends, scans are scheduled to run for 24 hours.
