[Openvas-discuss] Restrict concurrent tasks

Not to my knowledge and it's quite annoying. I have 1 master and 2 slaves running the jobs and I completely gave up on scheduling with OpenVAS.
Why care about which day/hour it starts and why limit it to a specific amount of runtime, hell if I know how long something will take.
Currently I am using / developing my own bash script which calls and parses omp to schedule a maximum of 2 jobs per slave; any job that hasn't run the current month.
I haven't worked it out nicely enough to release it or perhaps rewrite it in python but it's doing wonders to just let things work for me.

Kind regards / Vriendelijke groet,

Onderwerp: [Openvas-discuss] Restrict concurrent tasks

Is it possible to restrict the number of concurrent tasks started? I have 22 tasks scheduled to start at the same time, but can really only handle 5 concurrently. I'm trying to avoid rolling schedules if possible.
