Primary link station systematic interrogation of secondary link stations Used to avoid contention/collisions, determine operational status, and determine preparedness to transmit data
This is the approach used most often for task management Using this approach, a task attempts to execute during regular intervals Based on its status, the task will leave some sort of marker (a file or a db record) indicating if any dependent task should be executed Dependent tasks must also be scheduled on a polling basis to check for the marker and determine whether they need to run This approach leads to extremely high latency for task startup On average, the time between the original event (that the first task was watching for) and the execution of the dependent task is 1/2 of the sum of the polling intervals for both tasks This means that if the first task is set to poll on 1 minute intervals, and the second on 5 minute intervals, on average there will be a 3 minute latency between the originating event and the execution of the second task

Polling is the act of voting in an election. There has been a busy start to polling in today's local elections = voting
The process of repeatedly testing until a condition becomes true Polling can be inefficient if the time between tests is short compared with the time it will take for the condition to become true A polling thread should sleep between consecutive tests in order to give other threads a chance to run An alternative approach to polling is to arrange for an interrupt to be sent when the condition is true, or to use the wait and notify mechanism associated with threads
A method of updating data in a system, where one task sends a message to a second task on a regular basis, to check if a data point has changed If so, the change in data is sent to the first task This method is most effective when there are few data points in the system Otherwise, exception reporting is generally faster Although it has an exception-reporting architecture, the Cascade DataHub can support polling as needed
a process in which the status of devices attached to a bus system is periodically sampled
A media-access-control strategy in which a controlling computer mediates access to the communication channel
Access method in which a primary network device inquires weather secondaries have data to transmit The inquiry message gives the secondary device the right to transmit
A process in which a device polls the terminals connected to it, asking whether or not they have data to be sent to the host
A feature which permits a fax machine to call another machine and request it to transmit documents Pages must be left in the document feeder or in memory and the polling unit must have the passcode of the unit it is calling

During the night provided you have completed the 'end of day' procedure correctly, details of card payments will be collected via your equipment through a phone line This process is known as polling, and relates to off-line terminals only
Interrogation of devices for purposes such as to avoid contention, to determine operational status, or to determine readiness to send or receive data
- Sending pull messages at preprogrammed rates Often used to simulate push Polling is problematic because if the pull rate is too low then information may be stale when you receive it If the pull rate is too high then you waste time and bandwidth sending unneeded pull requests An example of polling is setting your computer to check the POP server every 5 minutes for new email Your computer sends a message "is anything new? Give it to me"...how about now? how about now?..." This results in a lot of network traffic An application or person that does this is a network hog
