Changing Group Membership Polling Interval in System Center Service Manager

by [Published on 4 Oct. 2016 / Last Updated on 4 Oct. 2016]

Tip explains how to change Group Membership Polling interval on System Center Service Manager to improve performance.

System Center Service Manager frequently checks to determine if there are any changes to the security groups. This check is performed every 30 seconds. For a large SCSM deployment, 30 seconds value might cause performance issues on the Service Manager server. You can modify the interval by using below registry entry on the Service Manager server:

  • Key: HKLM\Software\Microsoft\SystemCenter\2012\Common
  • Entry: GroupCalcPollingIntervalMilliseconds
  • Type: DWORD
  • Value: <Value in Milliseconds>

You must restart System Center Management Service for changes to take effect.
