Running Assessments at Regular Intervals

The compliance:default SMF service enables you to run assessments at regular intervals. When you enable the service, it regularly runs an assessment against the system's default policy. You can modify the default policy and set a different schedule.

The compliance:default service is delivered disabled. To run regular assessments, you enable the service. To schedule a policy assessment that is not the default, you perform two operations:

  1. Change the system's policy to a different benchmark, profile, or tailoring by running the compliance set-policy command.

  2. Modify the assessment schedule by using the svccfg command to add or modify one or more scheduled service properties of the compliance:default service.
