Hi Marcin,

no you can use it at any time.

The network load per host is around 400kb

and the cpu usage at the remote system around 2% (depend on the system)

We recommend to use a separate system for the discovery tool

because that system handles a lot of objects and will use the memory.

To avoid impacts to other services we recommend to use the discovery tool on a server that is not running any other "relevant" services. (That should be normal for any kind of "critical" services)
