Sensible polling time?


Well-Known Member
The default 2,000ms works fine, but I don't need devices to be polled that often. I've tried 4,000ms, SMART every 1,500 cycles, and controller every 2 cycles. This seems to provide a decent amount of data, but with barely using any system resources (with the above settings, HWiNFO is reported to use between 0% - 0.1% CPU, and 20.1 MB of RAM).

What's your polling time (three values) and why, if applicable, did you change it from the default?
