you want to know how alcatel calculate the duration of the scan period ?
the scan period is the duration of the calculation, therefore, the period calculates a scan of a duration, which in return is enduring a scanning of the calculation, for a certain period of the traffic.
That generates a lot of traffic, especially from the scan point of view. Hopefully, the calculation will reduce its duration.
