Perform a ASSET Discovery in Rapid7

How-to: Set up an asse discovery that will scan through the given network and perform the scan (automatically) for the alive hosts only.

I used to have a separate Discovery scan from my vuln scan, but I found this did not give me any performance gains. Since vuln scans do discovery as well, I do a full authenticated vuln scan across my /16 networks doing both discovery and vul and the scan takes the same amount of time as just the live vuln scans
