Scan Caching makes your scans super fast by using data from other scans that you or maybe one of your co-workers (who also has a PDQ Inventory Enterprise license key) may have already completed a scan two minutes ago. Using data from other scans makes updating your collections easier.
Scan age is where you set how frequently you would like your scan cache updated. If a scan hasn’t been completed in time frame set, your next scan will kick off the scan. If a scan has been completed, then that data will be pulled from the scan cache rather than initiating a new scan.
The Scan age can be adjusted anywhere from seconds to days.
