Adjust Asset Inventory polling frequency

By default, SAM collects data for the Asset Inventory feature daily, which uses less than 100 KB of database space per node. For an environment consisting of roughly 1,000 servers, that translates to just under 100 MB.

If you find that Asset Inventory polling impacts your polling engine(s), you can configure the polling interval to suit your needs. Generally, inventory data does not need to be collected with the same degree of regularity as status information.

To change the default Asset Inventory collection period:

You may need to log in with an administrator account to perform this action.

  1. Click Settings >All Settings.
  2. Under Thresholds & Polling, click Polling Settings.
  3. Adjust the Default Asset Inventory Poll Interval.

    The minimum value is 1 day.

  4. Click Submit.
