-|//Update interval (in sec)// ​ |This field specifies how often Zabbix performs discovery. In the beginning, when you are just setting up file system discovery, you might wish to set it to a small interval, but once you know it works you can set it to 30 minutes or more, because file systems usually do not change very often.\\ //Note//: If set to '0', the item will not be polled. However, if a flexible interval also exists with a non-zero value, the item will be polled during the flexible interval duration. ​ |+|//Update interval (in sec)// ​ |This field specifies how often Zabbix performs discovery.
