change frequency of execution of the ocs agent


I would like to change the frequency of execution of the agent Ocsinventory-ng on a machine under mac os X, but I would like to be able to do it once the agent is already installed and launched and without having to access the graphical interface of the software.
How is it possible to modify the frequency (by default every 5 hours I think) to reduce it to 1 hour?
Which files should be edited for this? What are the parameters to modify / add?

Best regards

Have you looked at configuring a "Custom inventory frequency" in the server configuration? Menu "Configuration > General Configuration"

You can also create groups, Menu "Inventory > Groups" and create a custom inventory frequency and PROLOG periods for different groups.
You DO NOT have to configure a package for deployment for this to work.

As I cannot access the parameters of the server, I seek to carry out this configuration from the client, and in command mode. Is this possible? Where, for example, is the information that indicates by default on the customer that the inventory escalation is done every 5 hours?

C'est possible de changer la fréquence d'inventaire sur le client mais le serveur aura toujours prépondérance sur le client.

Pour changer il faut éditer le fichier ocsinv.conf.

Merci pour vos réponses, mais en fait ce que je cherchais c'était plutôt :

modifier le fichier /Library/LaunchDaemons/org.ocsng.agent.plist
