Changing the replication interval on Windows systems

On Windows systems if you have multiple servers in your deployment, you can schedule when each one replicates.

The default is five minutes, but you can shorten the time for greater recoverability or increase it to limit network activity:

  1. Start up the BigFix Administration Tool.
  2. Select the Replication tab.
  3. Click the Refresh button to see the latest Replication Graph.
  4. Select the server you want from the drop-down menu. Using longer replication intervals means that the servers replicate data less often, but have more data to transfer each time. Note that replication intervals can be different for replicating from and replicating to a server.
  5. Select the replication interval from the menu on the right.
  6. Click OK.
