How to define the heatbeat parameter, which is how frequently the endpoint (agent) ask DH for deployements

to be applied on this endpoint via policyfetcher.

 

Windows:
maintains policyfetcher service settings it uses under the following key:

 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ComputerAssociates\AccessControl\policyfetcher

The policyfetcher
registry key contains the following registry entries:

 

  • check_deployment_tasks

    Defines how often, in seconds, policyfetcher checks for new deployment tasks
    (DEPLOYMENT resources) on the Distribution Host.

    Default:
    3600 (every 10 minutes)
