How to change download scheduling and speed for Device Pack and Symphony Client updates

Downloading a Device Pack or Symphony Client update typically takes about 5 minutes. The Symphony Server determines when a download will start (based on DownloadUpdateSchedulerInterval and UpdateDownloadMax and the current server load) and when it will be installed (based on Server and Client Update settings in the user interface.)

Every 10 minutes Symphony checks for Device Pack and Symphony Client updates on the server.You can override this interval by using a global setting in the Manual Configuration Editor.

  1. From the Server menu, select Manual Configuration Editor.
  2. Click Add a new setting... in the first row to activate the cells.
  3. In the blank field under the Type, Section, Key, and Value columns, enter
  4. Type=Global 
    Section=UpdateDeployment
