Change How Often an Agent Checks for Policy or Key Updates

The Web Agent polls the Policy Server at regular intervals to check for the following items:
sm1252sp1
The Web Agent polls the Policy Server at regular intervals to check for the following items:
  • Updated management information
  • Updated policies
  • Dynamically updated agent keys
Change this interval according to your needs with the following parameter:
PSPollInterval
Specifies how often (in seconds) the Web Agent contacts the Policy Server to retrieve information about policy changes or dynamically updated keys. Higher numbers (longer intervals) decrease network traffic. Lower numbers (shorter intervals) increase network traffic.
Default:
30
Limit:
1
To change how often a Web Agent checks the Policy Server for updates, change the number of seconds in the PSPollInterval parameter.
Increasing the PSPollInterval parameter also affects how quickly the Agents enforce

policy changes. For example, suppose you change a Policy to revoke access for a terminated employee at 10:30, and your PSPollInterval parameter has a value of 3600 (the number of seconds in an hour). The Web Agents would not enforce the changed policy until as late as 11:30.
