Modifying refresh rates of cluster bubbles - Genetec Mission Control™

Genetec Mission Control™ User Guide

Genetec Mission Control™

Cluster bubbles refresh and re-cluster map objects every 15 seconds by default. You can modify this refresh rate in the Lnk.Maps.config file.


  1. Open the Lnk.Maps.config file.
    • On a 64-bit computer, this file can be found in: C:\Program Files (x86)\Genetec Security Center 5.x\ConfigurationFiles\Lnk.Maps.config
    • On a 32-bit computer, this file can be found in: C:\Program Files\Genetec Security Center 5.x\ConfigurationFiles\Lnk.Maps.config
  2. In the Lnk.Maps.config file, add the following statement in the Maps element: ClusterInvalidateDelay="X", where X is the refresh rate in seconds.
  3. Save the file.
  4. Restart Security Desk.
    Lowering the default refresh rate can reduce system performance.
