Summarised in FAQ - How often does CAVS check for updates?

For the automatic updater, what is the check interval for the option “Automatically download and install updates for me (recommended)”
Does it check every hour, every 15 minutes, keep an open connection to the updates server for polling?

This information listed in the help file would be useful too.

Thanx,

You’re welcome. :wink:

Hi decentrix,
If this option (factory default) is in automatic updater is selected “Automatically download and install updates for me (recommended)”, CAV checks for new available updates at regular interval of 15 minutes. Once it is updated successfully, checks for the new available updates will be made at regular interval of 4 hours.

Just for your information the followings are mentioned in help file.

Automatic Updater
The application detects viruses and disinfects infected objects using the antivirus database, which contains the definitions of all currently known viruses and methods for disinfection. If the automatic updater has been enabled by user then the automatic updater will be running in background and checks for new available updates will be made at regular interval of 15 minutes. Once it is updated successfully, checks for the new available updates will be made at regular interval of 4 hours. Hence, it is highly recommended for user to enable the automatic updater.
