Location awarness: does the hear beat impact on discovering interval?

I've set up a group (with the communication setting as pull mode with a heart beat of 1 hour) with two locations:

  • Location 1: the client could ping a certain IP address
  • Location 2 (the default one): no conditions

I've left the default setting "The location will be checked every: 4 seconds".

Well, if I connect the pc with the target IP, apparently nothing happens. If I select "Update policy" on my test client, it correctly moves in the Location 1.
Same way, if I disconnect the pc with the target IP, nothing happens until I select "Update policy", then the test client correcly moves in the Location 2.

The question is: does the client check the location conditions only at his heart beat interval, regardless of the location check interval settings?

If so, is there a way in order to mantain the pull mode but to let the client check "often" the location conditions?

Thanks!
