Periodic Sync Interval Radius

This setting allows you to create some variability between sync intervals to mitigate company-wide traffic spikes. This is set in minutes and relates to the Periodic Sync Interval setting.

For example, if your Periodic Sync Interval is set to 45 minutes, and the Periodic Sync Interval Radius is set to 10 minutes, this means the next background sync will randomly occur between 45 +/- 10 minutes (35 – 55 minutes). After every sync, the radius changes to a new random number in the range that you have specified.
