Status Polling Schedule Settings

Table 1. Status Polling Schedule Settings. The following table describes the fields displayed in the status polling schedule settings window.
Field Description

Enable OnDemand Poll

Select to query the global status of the device when an alert is received from the device.

  • NOTE: If a large number of alerts are received, multiple OnDemand polls are queued up and it may affect the system performance. In this scenario, it is recommended to turn off OnDemand poll and enable the regular status poll interval to retrieve the health status of managed devices.

If OnDemand poll is disabled, the device status only updates on the normal status poll.

Enable Status Polling

Select to schedule device status polling.

Device Status Interval

Set frequency of the device status poll in intervals of days, hours, and minutes. The status polling does not begin until the previous polling has completed.

Days — Specify the number of days between device status polling.

Hours — Specify the number of hours between device status polling cycles.

Minutes — Specify the number of minutes between device status polling cycles.

The maximum discovery interval is 365 days, 23 hours, and 59 minutes.

Status Polling Speed

Set the amount of resources available for accelerating the device status polling speed. The faster you set the status speed, the more resources are required, but less time is required to perform the status polling.
