Summary0005350: Update redis-openvas.conf for possible "stuck" scans
Description/etc/redis/redis-openvas.conf currently contains the following:

save 900 1
save 300 10
save 60 10000

These might cause "stuck" scans and should be commented out:

Furthermore the "databases" configuration:

databases 16

could be raised for larger scans or parallel running tasks.

Due to the age of the OS (Kali Moto [v1], Kali Safi [v2], Kali Rolling <= 2018.4), these legacy versions are no longer supported.

The upstream documentation doesn't mention the need to disable those "save" calls. And the default number of databases is big enough for a single server case. Anyone building a larger setup should expect to have to tweak parameters.
