You can invoke a commandline scan with something like the following:

  nessus localhost 1241 me noway targets targets.nbe

where "targets" is a file containing the targets to scan and
"targets.nbe" is the file to which results (in NBE format) are written.

"man nessus" covers these and other options that you might find useful.

Hope you've thought about what to do with each host during the several
minutes it might take to scan it.
