It is now possible to set a cache age for all UNIX agent plugins via agent bakery rule.

In the new ruleset "Set cache age for plugins (UNIX)", you can define a set of a glob style pattern and an interval, that gets applied to all plugin files (files at /usr/lib/check_mk_agent/plugins on the target hosts) of the matching agent package and that results in caching the plugin's agent outputs for the given interval. Additionally, you can decide whether this set should override interval times from the plugin's dedicated ruleset.

This ruleset can be specified and applied multiple times.

Please note that no verification is done whether the configured intervals are suitable for the matching plugins. Especially, please be careful when overriding intervals from the plugin's dedicated rules, as there may be a default/minimal caching time for performance or other reasons.
