Auto Heartbeat Enabled

Enables whether the heartbeat will be automatically sent. When enabled, it attempts to ping all addresses returned by DNS until one (or none) responds.

NOTE: Heartbeat and Ping before scanning now tests multiple addresses in name resolution by default. See Preferences > Scanning for details regarding Offline Status.


Specifies the interval in seconds between heartbeats to individual computers. The default is 300 seconds.

NOTE: If you have more than 1,000 computers in your PDQ Inventory database, it is recommended you  increase the interval number to 600+ seconds.
