SNMP subagent

The poll interval is the number of seconds between updates of the statistics information displayed. 

If your server instance is running, and you have enabled statistics, you see a page displaying the kind of statistics you selected. The page is updated every 5-15 seconds, depending upon what you chose for the poll interval. 


You can use the statistics/profiling feature to monitor your server’s current activity. The statistics show you how many requests your server is handling and how well it is handling these requests. You can view some statistics for individual virtual servers, and others for the entire server instance.  

Select this option to enable/disable profiling.
