Hey guys. Im not a dev but I actively read PR’s and Issues relating to things I use within my brewery and HA
Currently I use the modbus integration to control VFD’s and PLC’s that run pumps around the brewery.
Under the modbus integration there is a option for scan_interval: however it flags a warning in the logs:
scan_interval(1) is lower than 5 seconds, which may cause Home Assistant stability issues
I understand that this is JUST A WARNING
What is the ACTUAL limitation that makes the devs set a limit on that 5 seconds??? Is it set because of the broad spectrum of hardware limitations that HA runs on e.g:CPU horsepower/USB/Network hardware or is HA throttling on purpose???
I run HaOS on a Dell Optiplex 7000 (12 core 4.7ghz) so I have no shortage of horsepower so I want to know if Id be better off moving all my ModBus VFD’s from the native integration to MQTT (which Id rather not as its not so easy on the VFD side) as MQTT has no such limitations.
Thanks for any commentary
