Registry Key for making Application Metering send the Summary data back every 5 minutes in 7.1 SP2

Dear All,

Application Metering 7.1 SP2 does not allow you to send the summary data back to the server every 5 minutres (for obvious reasons). However, I have evidence (from a Symantec training course) that you can do this in the registry of an endpoint. I did not get the contents of the registry file on the course.

The problem is that I have a possible hack for doing this, but it works for the WHOLE SERVER, which would be MAD. I need this to work for just a single machine.

Does anyone else have this?

Kindest regards,

QuietLeni

Can't find much, these articles do suggest the Application metering agent can be configured on the client:

http://www.symantec.com/docs/HOWTO50079

http://www.symantec.com/docs/HOWTO63536

Both referring to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Altiris\Application Metering key.

You could try restarting the Symantec Management Agent with Regmon running and see what is queried under that key.

Andy,

Yes, those are two SymWise articles that I have read and picked over, over and over. Nice try.

I like your idea of using RegMon, however?!

I do get annoyed that it is a useful thing to be able to do, but Symantec do not publish it. Even if they say, at the same time, "You can do this, but it is unsupported"!

Kindest regards,
