Sun Identity Manager 8.1 Business Administrator's Guide

Changing Polling Intervals

The polling interval determines when the Active Sync adapter will start processing new information. Polling intervals should be determined based on the type of activity being performed. For example, if the adapter reads in a large list of users from a database and updates all users in Identity Manager each time, consider running this process daily in the early morning hours. Some adapters may have a quick search for new items to process and could be set to run every minute.
