Just tuning my new install.
Wondering what the best practise is for heartbeat.
Default is 60min, but the PA person that helped us install this set it to 10m.
Whats the benefits , whats the recommended and why
In my experience, I have found that shortening the agent heartbeat time from 60 min to 10 or 15 gives you better metrics on who is connected. It also provides quicker policy pushes and agent upgrade actions (if you use ESM to upgrade instead of SCCM).
During rollout of Traps a 10 minute setting is nice as long as it doesn't bog the ESM down. If you need to make a quick change the agents will pick it up quickly. We had our set to 30 minutes during rollout and will probably keep it that way since it does not seem to be impacting the ESM servers negatively.
