Sets the Device's 24x7 monitoring Check cycle.

From Windows Monitoring Agent 10 the 24x7 Checks can be configured to run every five, fifteen, thirty, sixty or one hundred and twenty minutes for servers and workstations.

In previous versions of the Windows Monitoring Agent the 24x7 Checks run every five or fifteen minutes for Servers, thirty or sixty minutes for Workstations.

Windows Monitoring Agent 10: When selecting five or fifteen-minute monitoring for a Workstation, the Agent will synchronize with the Dashboard every thirty minutes to upload results, retrieve Automated Task and feature deployment settings etc.

If using the five or fifteen minute frequencies, a comparison with its previous result is made every time a Check runs. Where a change is detected this is immediately reported back to the Dashboard (please note that only the results are uploaded and this does not trigger a full synchronization). If no change is detected, the Check results are uploaded during the next synchronization upload cycle.

Date/Time Column

The Windows Monitoring Agent from version 10 runs and uploads Checks in batches, as such the time-stamp reported in the Date/Time column of the Dashboard may differ between Checks running at the same frequency.
