Polling frequency seems to default to 10m


I'm using the Website Monitoring app to monitor several websites, however they only seem to poll every 10 minutes, regardless of the value I specify in the Interval field.

I've tried values of 60s, 1m and 5m but all seem to poll every 10m.

Is there a way to set the interval that is recognized by the app?


This issue can occur when you have an excessive amount of pings configured since the pings occur synchronously. This can be identified by running:

sourcetype=web_availability_modular_input "Previous run was too far in the past"

This shows that based on the interval defined in the inputs.conf, runs were missed and the application is now compensating for the miss by updating its last run time and executing the ping.

To resolve the issue, either spread the load over a number of servers to meet your interval time or use a different method for pinging data.
