Issue/Introduction


When a computer has a new ip address (for example when computer changes from cable network to wifi, or connects to a VPN), "caf register" command is executed.
New registration data like ipaddress are sent and stored in cserver database on scalability server.

This new registration data are collected by engine during execution of scalability server collect job.
But this could take time if engine is busy with collect of AM inventory data files.

This could cause some problems as current ipaddress of computers may not be updated in ITCM database quickly.

Environment
