Configuring Managed Product Heartbeat Intervals

The Managed Product Heartbeat Interval settings determine how frequently the agent sends a heartbeat to the Control Manager server.

Use the Communication Time-out Settings screen to define the managed product heartbeat interval in minutes.

When configuring the managed product heartbeat interval, consider the following:

  • The Managed Product Heartbeat Interval settings only apply to managed products that register to the Control Manager server using the Control Manager management console.

  • Long heartbeat intervals consume less bandwidth but allow more network events to occur before Control Manager updates the communication status.

  • Short intervals between heartbeats consume more bandwidth but present a more up-to-date picture of your network status.

  1. Go to Administration > Managed Servers > Communication Time-out Settings.

    The Communication Time-out Settings screen appears.

  2. In the Managed Product Heartbeat Interval section, configure the following settings:
    • Report managed product status every: Defines the agent communication heartbeat interval

      Valid values are between 5 and 480 minutes.

    • If no communication, set status as abnormal after: Defines the agent communication time-out interval

      Valid values are between 15 and 1440 minutes.

    Important:

    The If no communication, set status as abnormal after value must be at least triple the Report managed product status every value.
