Adjust the Pinger Interval

Introduction

Goal

Configure the interval of "pinger" callback sent to the server by the CMS web application to keep the authenticated session alive.

Background

On a regular basis, the CMS web application performs a callback to the server to keep the authenticated session in the browser alive. As a side effect, changes made by other users will also be returned upon the callback. This periodic task is known as the "pinger".

By default, the pinger callback is fired every 20 seconds.

Configure Pinger Interval

The default pinger callback interval (20 seconds) can be changed through the String property pinger.interval in the configuration of /hippo:configuration/hippo:frontend/cms/cms-static/root. For example, to fire the pinger every one and a half minute, set the property to "90 seconds":

+ hippo:configuration
  + hippo:frontend
    + cms
      + cms-static
        + root
          - pinger.interval = 90

Disable Pinger

A pinger.interval value of 0 disables the pinger.

Note that regardless of the pinger interval, a user is automatically logged out after being inactive for a configurable amount of time. See Configure Active Logout for more information.
