Polling interval

For hot folder input devices, specifies the time interval at which Ricoh ProcessDirector checks for files in the directory that the Folder location property specified.

For REST and SOAP web service input devices, specifies the time interval at which Ricoh ProcessDirector checks for files at the Request URL. These input devices require the Web Services Enablement feature.

The unit of time for the value can be milliseconds, seconds, minutes, hours, or days. You can specify a value from 0 milliseconds through 24 hours.

InputDevice.PollInterval

Usage note: When the Completion method property for a hot folder input device is set to Size, the input device checks the file size. The input device then waits for the length of the polling interval and checks the size of the file again. When the file size stays the same from one check to the next, the input device submits a job. With the default Polling interval of 30 seconds, a job that has been fully received waits from 31 to 60 seconds in the input device before it is submitted.
