    Why do Scheduled Tasks take a total time of 7 minutes to show completed when they have actually completed much sooner?  It does this for both Distribution Packages and Scripts.

      We just upgraded from v9.5 and we are noticing that any "short" Schedule Tasks take a total time of 7 minutes to show completed when they have actually completed much sooner.  It does this for both Distributed Packages and Scripts.

       

      Let's say that I created a script to run a "Ping" command, which also wakes up the computer.  It first takes 1 minute to start the task and shows the computer as "being discovered".  It then quickly changes to "cannot find agent" until it gets to 6 1/2 minutes, then changes the status back to "being discovered" again.  Then finally, just before the 7 minute mark it shows that it runs the task and shows "completed" shortly thereafter.

       

      Our version 9.5 of LANDesk never did this.  A script would run immediately, then finish the task and show it "completed" within one minute.

       

      Is there a particular setting or something that can be changed?
