Create a Policy for ESET Management Agent connection interval

In this example, we are going to create a new policy for the ESET Management Agent connection interval. This value should be adjusted based on the size of your infrastructure by using policies after you install ESET PROTECT On-Prem and deploy ESET Management Agents and ESET endpoint products to client machines.

Create a New Static Group. Add a new policy by clicking Policies. Click Actions at the bottom and select New.



Type a Name for the new policy (for example, "Agent Connection Interval"). The Description field is optional.


Select ESET Management Agent from the Product drop-down menu.


Click Connection interval > Change interval.


In the Regular interval field, change the value to your preferred interval time (60 seconds is the default replication interval of the ESET Management Agent) and click Save.



Specify the clients (individual computers/mobile devices or whole groups) that are the recipients of this policy.


Click Assign to display all Static and Dynamic Groups and their members. Select your desired computers or groups and click OK.


To assign all computers in a group, assign the group instead of individual computers to prevent a Web Console slowdown.

The Web Console displays a warning if you select a high number of computers.



Review the settings for this policy and click Finish. The policy gets applied on the targets after their next connection to ESET PROTECT Server (depending on the Agent connection interval).


To apply the policy immediately, you can run the Send Wake-Up Call action on targets in the Computers sections.
