How often does my PDQ install check in with for updated information?


E.g. Adobe released another Flash update today. If PDQ updates the install package and collection criteria, how long does it take my server to get that new information.

Just wondering if this is done on a pre-defined schedule or how it works.

  • I am not 100% on the specifics but, PDQ Deploy should be checking the Package Library for updates constantly and as well as the Collection Library in PDQ Inventory. This is even tracked in an audit log:

    C:\ProgramData\Admin Arsenal\PDQ Deploy\Audit

    C:\ProgramData\Admin Arsenal\PDQ Inventory\Audit

    You can force a check, by closing and reopening the console or by opening the Collection/Package Library and hitting F5.

  • The Collection Library updates every 2 hours. I think the Package Library does too, but I'm less sure about that one.

  • Yeah, I wasn't completely sure on the Package Library, as mine is checking far more often than 2 hours and wasn't sure if it was due to some internal reasons 😃
