How do I adjust the refresh time for Insight?

This document is specific to Insight 9.0 and is maintained here for legacy purposes. Documentation for Insight 11 can be found here;

The refresh rate for a client system running Insight can be altered by adjusting the following keys:


For 32-bit PCs:


"ThumbnailDelay"= REG_DWORD:00001000


For 64-bit PCs:


"ThumbnailDelay"= REG_DWORD:00001000


The value is the number of milliseconds that it waits between thumbnail refresh.  Set to 1000 for a 1 second delay.  The default is 5000 for a 5 second delay. Tweaking this value may result in an increase in network traffic and CPU load on the client workstations. Changes to this setting will require a reboot to become active.
