  • The Servers section refreshes data automatically every 120 seconds. Immediate data refreshes occur when you open the dashboard page, select a site, or click Refresh. The next data refresh does not start until the previous refresh completes. Thus, if you click Refresh during a data refresh, a popup window appears asking you to try again later.
