    Hi Greg,

    Thanks for the question.  You can set the WMI polling interval for each metric through the SQL Monitor Configuration Editor.

    Browse to the SQL Monitor Tools folder under your install path (eg, %programfiles\Red Gate\SQL Monitor\BaseMonitor\Tools).

    Run the following program (Run As Administrator): ConfigurationFileEditor.exe
    This will prompt you to open a config file.  The config file to open is by default under %programdata%\Red Gate\SQL Monitor\RedGate.SqlMonitor.Engine.Alerting.Base.Service.exe.settings.config

    This will then enable you to set the polling interval for each metric you want to capture:

    Hope this helps.
