DB Connect: When do dbmon and dbtail do the indexing?

Path Finder

Couldn't find the answer to this is the Splunk Docs, but since using a DB as the source is different than sourcing a file to be indexed, the question arose.

according to: tail -f var/log/splunk/dbx.log
DB Connect triggered by Interval parameter and Splunk indexes data during retrieval.
Hope it helps.
