There is a potential solution to this.
You can set the analysis property to report once every 6 hours and it will be more likely to be fresh. Once every hour would help ensure this even more so. I would not recommend using every report in most cases, even once every 5 minutes would be better.
Another option is to use a task to tell the client to send a full report on a schedule. You could set the property to report once a day, or even once every 30 days, but then force the client to update it.
Send a task that only runs at 6am, or only runs after the other tasks have completed, or put it at the end of the set of tasks that will make all of the changes.
This is the actionscript for the task:
notify client ForceRefresh
The main problem with this option is that it will force the client to update ALL properties regardless of their report interval. This means if you have a lot of heavy properties, it will have to go through them all. It also means that all of the clients that get this will be sending a significant amount of data to the relays and root, which could be a problem if your root server can’t ingest the reports fast enough. If you send this to all clients and you had a lot of them and the root server was slow enough, it is possible that this could back up your reporting for days in the worst case.
I just thought of this. Not sure it is a great idea, but it might work.
Use the REST API to automatically switch the analysis properties you care about from reporting once every 6 hours to once every 5 min at 5am and have it switch back at 7am.
This would require that the clients get the UDP notifications from their relay or have command polling enabled to ensure this change propagated quickly enough. This is extra true if the clients are sleeping during the night and are being awoken to run a bunch of stuff and then go back to sleep. If a client misses a UDP notification while sleeping, then wakes, it won’t know about it and it won’t check in to see what it missed unless command polling is enabled. So in the worst case, the clients wouldn’t know about the change in reporting interval for the analysis properties.
Get IBM to create an actionscript command to force a client to update a specific property or analysis instead of ALL properties.
notify client Refresh "Name_Of_Property"
