ID vs. Qualys Host ID

I am still learning the in's and out's of Qualys but this is confusing me a little. 

 

When you go into Asset Search and pull up any machine, there is a value in the General Information tab that reads "ID:  XXXXXXXXX".  its a random looking 9 character long number.

However I have to search for QID 45179 to see the Qualys Host ID which is a 20+ character string.

 

So I guess my question is:

 

What is the difference between ID and Qualys Host ID (QID 45179) ?

 

Are both ID's random i.e. unique?

 

Why does the ID exist if Qualys Host ID exists.
