Annoying SQL traffic from Retrospect 7.5

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

When I look at my CPU usage on my server or look into the SQL server activities

using SQL Server profiler , I see that Retrospect is polling my SQL server every 10-15

seconds and runs queries against every database.

 

This is VERY annoying and is it possible to change the frequency of these polls? or

turn them off? I don't use the SQL backup option right now.

 

My CPU usage diagam in the task manager looks like a heart-beat diagram from

a hospital!.

Hi Andy -

 

Go to the Retrospect application folder and open the Retro.ini file. Increase the value of:

 

SQLPollInterval=15000

 

The value is in milliseconds.

Retrospect 6.0 did not include SQL support. It was not introduced until 6.5.

 

I believe the SQLPollInterval line item only works in Retrospect 7.5.
