A. Concurrent hosts - the # of hosts that are simultaneously tested.
B. Concurrent tests - the # of tests (per host) that may be
    simultaneously run.

If you launch a test against two machines (e.g. 192.168.1.1,192.168.1.2)
you will start auditing both IPs simultaneously if and only if
concurrent hosts is > 1.  Within each IP being tested up to "B"
concurrent tests will be run simultaneously, at most, providing
plugin scheduling and dependencies allows for it.
