Is openvas distributed or central?

hi guys, i’ve read a bit of the openvas documentation but i don’t understand if it’s a platform with a centralized or distributed architecture, can you please clear my doubts?


for a detailed description of the architecture please take a look at

Our software consists of several components which are interacting with each other. Therefore it has a distributed service architecture. But if you think about data management the data is stored centralized in a postgres database controlled by our gvmd service. To answer the question it depends on your understanding of centralized and distributed architecture.
