Collection interval for diagnostic data

by Mar 16, 2015

I am a newcomer to SQL Diagnostic Manager but have used other SQL diagnostic tools in the past. One thing that surprised me about SQLdm is the default collection interval of 6 minutes for diagnostic data. I felt that this was much too big – a lot of things can happen in 6 minutes right? So I just wanted to get an idea of what other people have configured this setting at.
