24x7 Checks

This section provides information on the 24x7 Checks available for Windows computers. These steps focus on managing the Checks from the Dashboard (recommended method), depending on the Check there is also the option to manage it from the Agent (legacy).

For a list of the default checks automatically added during agent installation, see Standard Checks.

24x7 Check Frequency

Device type Frequency option (Minutes)
Server 5 | 15 | 30 | 60 | 120
Workstation 5 | 15 | 30 | 60 | 120

When you select five or 15-minute monitoring for a workstation, the Agent synchronizes with the Dashboard based on the selected frequency to upload results, retrieve Automated Task and feature deployment settings and so on.

If you are using the five or 15-minute frequencies, a comparison with its previous result is made every time a Check runs. If a change is detected, it is immediately reported to the Dashboard (only the results are uploaded and a full synchronization is not triggered). If no change is detected, the Check results are uploaded during the next synchronization upload cycle.

The Windows Agent runs and uploads Checks in batches, as such the time-stamp reported in the Date/Time column of the Dashboard may differ between Checks running at the same frequency.
