Hi, I signed up to Burp professional edition. Tried to scan my application, It is taking really long time almost more than a week. Is there any way i can reduce the scan time? Or Just wanted to know if i am doing it right. I implemented exactly as it shows in the tutorial on Pluralsight - Web Application Penetration Testing with Burp Suite. Please suggest. Thanks Nandini

Hi, I am having the same issue. My VM has 8192MB of memory, 40,9GB hard drive. I have checked your article, but it doesn't help.

Could you provide us with some information about the application you are scanning? How many locations are crawled? How many requests are sent?
