Shards are polled on a per request basis. Everytime a shard info is looked at it will update so long as 5 minutes has elapsed since the last update. So the minimum would be 5 minutes but could be much more. Using the export function counts as checking the cache time and if it has been longer than 5 minutes it will update.With what frequency are shards polled by ServUO, dmurphy?
Historical stats will be a feature of the shardlist, you will be able to view graphs here on ServUO or export the stats as a json array or xml file to do your own parsing on your own site.Great work!
Will the shard poller ever be scheduled so that we'll be able to generate graphs of player population over time?
