What is the difference between Quick Scan and Discovery scan?

Discovery Scan

A Discovery Scan scans all the IP Addresses in the defined Scan Range(s).

Quick Scan

A Quick Scan will only scan the IP Addresses that returned a scan result on the last scan regardless of whether that scan was a Discovery or Quick Scan. It will not scan every IP Address ever found in any Discovery Scan, only the ones found during the last scan. So, if a device was not found during the last scan it will not be found during the next Quick Scan; it will not be found again until another Discovery Scan finds the device.

Additional Information

A scan initiated from the ICE Administrator is a Discovery Scan.
