Does turning an alarm to off automatically turn the associated Scan Type/Group off as well?

Description:

I turned off some alarms; however I still see many uv_scan processes running. I want to know if turning off alarms reduces the number of uv_scan processes or do I need to manually turn off the scans associated with the alarms.

Solution:

Scan Groups are not controlled by alarms. Alarms send alerts when the designated scan goes beyond a preset threshold. If you turn an alarm off, the scan will continue to run, however you will not receive alerts on it. Therefore the uv_scan processes will continue to run for those particular scans unless you manually turn the Scan Group off.
