Manifest Action Distribute Over Time 1 minute The time over which to randomize distribution of the manifest that contains updated endpoint configuration information to endpoints. Randomizing this distribution over a period of time helps balance resource use. The duration that you specify for this setting must be shorter than the duration that you specify for the Manifest action duration seconds setting.
Manifest Action Duration 1 hour The time after which the action that is used to deliver the manifest expires and is reissued. The duration that you specify for this setting must be longer than the duration that you specify for the Manifest action distribute seconds setting.
Deploy Client Configuration and Support Action Distribute Over Time 1 minute The time over which to randomize distribution of the Client Extensions bootstrap installer for endpoint tools. Randomizing this distribution over a period of time helps balance resource use. The duration that you specify for this setting must be shorter than the duration that you specify for the Deploy client configuration and support action duration setting.
Deploy Client Configuration and Support Action Duration 1 hour The time after which the action that is used to distribute the Client Extensions bootstrap installer for endpoint tools expires and is reissued. The duration that you specify for this setting must be longer than the duration that you specify for the Deploy client configuration and support action distribute seconds setting.
Manifest package ignore action lock Unselected Determines whether the action that is used to deliver the manifest ignores an action lock in place on an endpoint. If this setting is disabled, the manifest is not distributed to an endpoint that has an action lock, and that endpoint does not evaluate needed configuration changes. For more information, see Tanium Console User Guide: Managing action locks.

Tools installation settings

Setting Default value Description
Distribute over time 0 seconds The time over which to randomize distribution of the endpoint tools that each endpoint requires, based on the modules that are in use with that endpoint. Randomizing this distribution over a period of time helps balance resource use.
