Battery Powered Pi - Expand or Slow Reporting Interval?


I have installed the Cayenne Agent on a Pi Zero W. I am trying to convert this system to a battery powered system and I am concerned the Cayenne Agent will be reporting stats on the processor, memory, processes, etc, every second.

  1. Do I have a misunderstanding of the Cayenne Agent? Meaning, if I remove the processor, memory, processes, etc from the Cayenne daskboard, will this trigger MQTT to NOT send data every second?
  2. Is there a way to modify the agent reporting interval, to say, 60 seconds or 60 minutes?

Thanks for your help.


I don’t think that if you remove the above widget it will stop the device from working. These widgets are just basic commands as I know, that you can also run them on the command prompt :slight_smile:
