AgentCheckupInterval Property

This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature.

The AgentCheckupInterval property specifies the default time slice for scheduled replication agent activities.

.AgentCheckupInterval [ = value ]


An expression that evaluates to an object in the Applies To list.


A long integer specifying the number of minutes. The default is 10.



HRESULT GetAgentCheckupInterval(LPLONG pRetVal);
HRESULT SetAgentCheckupInterval(long lVal);

When replication is configured, jobs are created that test and clean supporting databases and tables. By default, these replication "check-up" jobs are scheduled to occur every ten minutes.

To alter the default, set the AgentCheckupInterval property after installing the replication Distributor.
