Would I be right in assuming about an hour?

Which RSS feed are you referring too?

Normally I get the feed within minutes of a post. Though I need to play around a bit as I have not had any feeds for around 1 month now Yell

It depends, most clients poll the feed every 15 minutes or so. You can set it lower however but...

It isn't optimal to query more than that, unless you were testing because you then place more load on the servers which reduces its ability to serve others.

I think the Feedburner feeds update every 15 minutes once....

The main FeedBurner ones usually take around 10-15min, while the Geekzone fed ones are nearly instant.

FeedBurner supplies the feed services, and those are updated every 15 minutes.

Feeds for specific forums are instant because they come directly from our database server, due to the username and password requirements.

However most RSS feed readers update feeds from the server every hour.

I thought there was some sort of delay. I use Google Reader so no idea how often this updates the feeds.

Slightly off topic query Mauricio, why do you use FeedBurner and why not have the RSS powered off an ASP script?  This whole area is very new to me so I'm curious.

Think of all those users who install their favorite RSS client and configure to poke the Geekzone server every 1 minute...Surprised

Database access costs a lot in terms of CPU time even though almost 90% of the Geekzone database is already in memory.

Chaks is righ, someone would like to have updates every minute or less - what if a lot of people did that?

Would the CPU usage not be comparable to someone hitting a normal GZ page multiple times? Could you not implement caching to prevent heavy database usage?
