Let us recall first the inner architecture of the Brain. It uses multiple technologies with a specific purpose each:

  • a Celery worker that handles scan requests from Frontends and results returned by the Probes.
  • a RabbitMQ server used by Celery as a backend and as a broker for task queues and job queues used to schedule tasks for Probes (for scan jobs) and the Frontend (for scan results).
  • an SFTP server where files to be scanned are uploaded by Frontends and downloaded by Probes,
