What is the default interval for inventory data collection for both agent and agent-less nodes? Is it recommended to change?

By default, SapphireIMS collects inventory data every 24 hours. Please note that it uses moving window for data collection, and it attempts to collect data on time difference compared to last collected inventory. It won’t collect the inventory data at fixed time on periodic schedule. If you want at fixed time, you may need to use daily/weekly or monthly schedule to collect data at specific time of the day.

Also, point to note that, agent use push mode to push inventory data whereas agent-less use pull mode to collect inventory.

In a controlled environment where changes don’t happen frequently, we recommend using inventory on weekly cycle rather than daily.
