Scan Engine is easy to configure but...

The InsightVM scan engine is easy to install and configure with the security console. However, after a few months of regular scans the scan engine EBS volume is completely filled. This wouldn't be a problem if the scan engine allowed ssh access into it so that we can re-size the EBS volume correctly. Instead you have to delete and re-setup the scan engine with a bigger EBS every so often.
There is also no means to delete older logs from the scan engine in an automated fashion which is the main cause of this issue.

Hi Rohan, That is definitely not expected behavior - you shouldn't have to continuously increase storage for one of our Scan Engines. Also, even though we don't allow SSH access, you can use AWS SSM to access the instance. If you haven't already, please submit a support case so we can work with you to figure out what's going on. If you run into any issues, feel free to contact me directly:
