Device discovery frequency

It is not advisable to increase the default frequency of device discovery because this can create an excessive load on domain controllers. Instead, it is recommended to schedule polling at the minimum possible frequency permitted by the needs of your organization. Recommendations for calculating the optimal schedule are provided in the table below.

Device discovery schedule

Number of networked devices

Recommended device discovery frequency

Less than 10,000

Default frequency or less

10,000 or greater

Once per day or less
