When the vRealize Desktop Agent starts up, it checks into the View Adapter in vRealize Operations.

The View Adapter installed in vRealize Operations sends configuration data to the vRealize Desktop Agent when the agent starts up. This configuration is listed in the file, /usr/lib/vmware-vcops/user/plugins/inbound/V4V_adapter3/conf/agent-config.xml

To change the poll interval change the following parameters:

<configuration type="collector" version="1">  
<!-- Collector configuration for version 2 agents. -->  
<configuration type="collector" version="2">  
<configuration type="collector" version="3">  

In the v4v-agent log, the following messages would appear showing the collection interval and polls per interval
