Setting the database polling interval
Published 23 March 2022
By default, Source Control for Oracle polls the database for changes every 60 seconds. You can change this by editing a config file.
We don't recommend you change the polling interval unless the default interval is causing problems.
- Go to the Source Control for Oracle config files folder. By default, this is located at: %localappdata%\Red Gate\Source Control for Oracle 1
Open ConnectionStore.xml in a text editor.
Change the value in the
<PollingInterval>tags to the interval you want. The interval time is set in milliseconds (1000 milliseconds = 1 second).
To disable polling, set the value to 0.
Don't edit anything else in the file unless advised by Redgate support. Editing other settings may cause errors.
- Save and close the file.
Source Control for Oracle polls the database at the interval you specified.
If you change the automatic refresh setting on the source control projects page, the
<PollingInterval> value in the config file will also change.
