Hmm, I wonder what is going on.  There are a lot of openvassd processes in
that list.  With max_hosts and max_checks 1 I would expect only a few.
Where did you set these prefs?  Perhaps try set them in GSA.

If I understand your question right, that's what it already does.  All
results are stored on the server by OpenVAS Manager.  The clients are just
front ends to the Manager.  So you can access the same scan and results
from both the desktop client and the web client, even at the same time.
