Changing ping check frequency?

Postby Thompson » Wed Jun 20, 2018 9:27 pm

Is it possible to adjust the frequency of the ping check? I like having the latency shown on my display, but it seems to ping every second. I don't necessarily need that rapid of a check, so I'm wondering if it's possible to delay the ping check to only ping every, say, 10 or 30 seconds instead? I've checked the options and can't seem to find anything through the user interface, but perhaps if I did a bit of modification to the underlying software I could make this happen.

Anyone have any insight regarding this? It seems like it'd be as simple as changing a single value from "1" to "30".

I think it would be a very interesting addition.
Would be nice to be able to choose between 1.5, 10, 15 or 30 seconds for the ping check...

Yeah, I agree. I've dug around and can't find anything like this. Anyone else have any insight?

The internal ping check works like a normal ping, to make it work for intervals a plugin would be needed.
I will see if i can modify our internal ping but no promises

Hey TheLaGmAn, was this something that was able to be accomplished?
