Chef Ideas

We believe that the best way to build software is to do it in close collaboration with the people who use it. We invite you to submit your ideas using the form below. Please be sure to include the problem for which you are solving and the benefits of implementing the idea.

We do our best to implement as many Ideas as we can. Our Product team will evaluate all submitted ideas in a timely manner and will disposition each into one of the following categories: will integrate into the product roadmap, further research is needed, unlikely to implement.

Thanks for collaborating with us!

Tracking runtime for the compliance runs

The nature of some INSPEC controls can cause really long runs (hours to days depending on the size of a filesystem that is being scanned). There does not seem to be a way to detect this either on the Automate server or the client (other than negative performance impact). Ideally the compliance report should show total runtime, and then the runtime for each control to help narrow down problematic long running controls.

    We had this impact a database server and spent considerable time just trying to determine which control was problematic.
