Communication Check

Automated Communication Check

While browsing the real-time data views, the IFE server has an automated communication check that runs every 15 minutes by default. To change the timing, refer to Preferences. This check verifies the communication health of all the devices configured on the IFE server, and attempts to re-establish the communication to any device marked out of service within the current browser session.
