Nessus is built-in, hence functional by default. All you got to do is add the devices, use built-in rules which trigger incidents when matched by particualr events/sessions. You don't need to enable/disable these tools as the most recent upgrade of MARS contains most recent signatures/rules for the scanning tools.

well , but for any incident how do i know that nessus or nmap has run a scan during this incident & how can i see the output of the scan

you mean that the scan happens in the background but no means to see that scan happened for specific host?

the second issue: if i added third party VA tool like Mcafee founstone , is there any mean to knoe the scans happened & its content & result
