GVM 11 - After everytime we sync NVTs is any service restart necessary


With new GVM 11 after sync of NVT’s everytime do we need restart any of the services or it will just sync to web portal by itself if any service not restarted?

GVM versions

gsa: (‘gsad --version’) = Greenbone Security Assistant 9.0.1
gvm: (‘gvmd --version’) = Greenbone Vulnerability Manager 9.0.1
openvas-scanner: (‘openvassd --version’) = OpenVAS 7.0.1
gvm-libs: = gvm-libs 11.0.1


Operating system: = Unbuntu 18 LTS
Kernel: (‘uname -a’) = 4.15.0-101-generic #102-Ubuntu SMP Mon May 11 10:07:26 UTC 2020 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Installation method / source: = VM Installation

This will be done automatically by all services in GVM-11, no restart or similar required besides running the greenbone-*-sync scripts.

ok thanks, was confirming as everytime after sync if I restart gvmd service it breaks as scap data sync is going on

Can you tell exactly how much it will take after we run a nvt sync to reflect in web portal? As even after 6-8 hours after I ran the nvt,scap & cert sync it did not reflect in the web portal of openvas.

I have similar problem. My NVTs are:

Greenbone Community Feed
Too old (28 days)
Please check the automatic synchronization of your system.

Synchronization is very fast (too fast for me):

gvm@gse:~$ time greenbone-nvt-sync

real    0m0.026s
user    0m0.022s
sys     0m0.005s

After that gvm is reloading NVTs…

gvm@gse:~$ ps -ef |grep gvm
gvm       8343     1  0 Jul23 ?        00:01:30 gvmd: Waiting for incoming connections
postgres  8366  6585  0 Jul23 ?        00:00:32 postgres: 11/main: gvm gvmd [local] idle
root      8503  8500  0 09:30 pts/0    00:00:00 su - gvm
gvm       8504  8503  0 09:30 pts/0    00:00:00 -bash
gvm       8568  8343  0 09:31 ?        00:00:00 gvmd: Reloading NVTs
gvm       8570  8568  0 09:31 ?        00:00:00 gvmd: OSP: Updating NVT cache
postgres  8573  6585  0 09:31 ?        00:00:00 postgres: 11/main: gvm gvmd [local] idle
gvm       8580  8504  0 09:31 pts/0    00:00:00 ps -ef
gvm       8581  8504  0 09:31 pts/0    00:00:00 grep gvm

And I still have obsoleted NVTs database.

I find the solution. I need to delete lock file in:


BTW. Method of syncing has changed to RSYNC:
