Cause
Discoveries send larger amounts of data requests than normal scans. In many cases, other files such as configuration files and DDF files are also transferred during discovery

Resolution:

For best results, it is recommended that a large discovery job, for example 2000 SNMP devices, be run as several smaller discoveries.
