This configuration parameter specifies how frequently the agent should check the disk space available for the local cache. The default interval checks the available disk space every 5 minutes. If the disk space available at any interval is less than the value you set for the parameter, the agent will stop saving data in the local cache and will discard any new data until you free up enough disk space for it to resume saving data in the local cache.

In most cases, you set this configuration parameter using group policy. You can, however, set it manually in the configuration file if you are not using group policy or want to temporarily override group policy.

The parameter value must be an integer zero or greater. A value of zero disables checking for available disk space. For example:

adclient.disk.check.interval: 5

Note:   Keep in mind that the value you set for this parameter can affect the recovery of a system after the agent stops writing data to the local cache. If you set this parameter to 0, the agent will not check for available disk space so it will not return to normal operation when disk space is freed up. In addition, setting this parameter to 0 or to a long interval may cause the agent to consume too much of the disk for its local cache and make the computer unstable or unusable. Therefore, you should keep the interval for checking the available disk space relatively short. Keeping the interval short will also help to ensure that the agent resumes normal operation and saving data to its cache at the earliest opportunity.
