Target by target isn't the issue. Define your range (30 servers is
tiny compared to what I'm scanning) but limit the number of concurrent
hosts and concurrent NVT's until you find a balance that works for
you. Currently, I limit mine to 5 hosts with 4 concurrent NVT's and
have no problems running scans from a VM.
