inventory frequency [closed]

how often exactly does the agent send inventory to the server?

I know that if you customize I can put the number of days, but in the option (always inventory) what is this frequency?

The config is saved in table 'config' with fields Name, Ivalue, Tvalue and Comments.

For the row with Name='FREQUENCY', the Comments is 

'Specify the frequency (days) of inventories. (0: inventory at each login. -1: no inventory)'

IMHO you have the answer : Always = 0, Never = -1, Personnalized = any number (of days) >0

For a value of 1, that's means : any agent, without --force, could send only one inventory each 1 day. When agent call the server, the server give the date/time acceptable for new inventory (= last inventory + 1 day), and the agent send the inventory only after this date/time.
