Update Frequency

Recommended Posts

Auto definition update is set for every 8 hours.

Is there a way to have auto update check more often? SAS updates more often than others that I have tried, and although I can update manually, it would be more convenient to have an option to check every 4 hours for instance.

That is not a "Big Deal" with me, just a thought.

Regards,

Jerry

We currently have it fixed at 8 hours, as we want to be careful not to flood our update servers with update requests so that all users can get their updates promptly. Typically, the best procedure is to check for updates prior to scanning. As a registered user of the Professional, if you are using the scheduled scanning, you can tell SAS to check for updates before scanning so you would always have the latest definitions.

Thanks, Nick. Sounds reasonable to me. I just tell it to update every so often when I am on the computer.
