How often is too often to publish messages

I’m running a few apps that publish messages to devices every ten minutes or so.

I’m just wondering how often is too often from the point of view of wearing down the memory in the end device. But also any other reason I might not be aware of.

If it’s likely to be a problem then I will put more effort into finding if the message I’m publishing is the same as the current state or not (and only publishing if it is actually different).

Thanks in advance

The answer is dependent on what the end device is and the communication used.

I would say that in general sending something every 10 minutes should be fine

Thanks for your answer. I appreciate it’s not a one size fits all question but it’s nice to have a general opinion.

In my case I’m publishing topics using Z2M to lightbulbs and TRVs
