Can data sent to the cloud be throttled for off peak hours? How often is data uploaded?

Data collected using intelligence packs is collected by Operations Manager agents or Direct Agents, and is sent as frequently as it’s generated, such as shortly after an event is written or when performance counter data is collected.

Configuration assessment data is sent by default every few hours, but this frequency can be increased or delayed by following the instructions at Use Registry Keys to Configure System Center Advisor.
