Hey @Lalith! Host details also update periodically. What kind of traffic are you seeing?

There are a few different intervals that affect how often hosts check in: https://fleetdm.com/docs/deploying/configuration#osquery-detail-update-interval That’s how often Fleet queues up detail queries Then there’s the label update interval: https://fleetdm.com/docs/deploying/configuration#osquery-label-update-interval The largest traffic you’ll see is for the distributed interval in osquery… that’s how often hosts check in for new queries (and likely the majority of the traffic you’re seeing): https://fleetdm.com/docs/using-fleet/configuration-files#agent-options-config
