8.1 Using the Policy Refresh Rate Command

With NMAS 3.1 or later, you can configure NMAS to refresh the cached NMAS login policy from the NMAS login policy stored in the Security container at scheduled intervals instead of upon every login attempt. This configuration is set per server by using the NMAS policy refresh rate command.

NOTE:The server accesses the Security container once during startup to cache the policy. Then, based on the configured intervals, the server attempts to access the Security container to refresh the policy.

The policy refresh rate command has the following syntax:

nmas RefreshRate minutes

where minutes is the number of minutes between each attempt to check if the cached NMAS login policy needs to be updated.

For information on how the policy refresh rate command can be invoked for each NMAS Server platform, see Section 8.4, Invoking NMAS Commands.
