My bbdisplay is already configured to have 1 minute update interval, it is on bb2.html is still  updated every 5 minutes.

# "bbdisplay" runs the bbgen tool to generate the Hobbit webpages from the status information that
# has been received. Big Brother updated the webpages once every 5 minutes. The default here is to
# run it every minute for faster updates, but you can change it if you have a highly loaded server
# and dont need updates that often.

        ENVFILE /etc/hobbitserver42/hobbitserver.cfg
        NEEDS hobbitd
        GROUP generators
        CMD bbgen $BBGENOPTS --report
        LOGFILE $BBSERVERLOGS/bb-display.log
        INTERVAL 1m

I do remember there is a option somewhere is hobbit man page that can set "dynamic, on demand " update.

If desired I know you can change it.  One of the configs in server/etc - if you can't find it let me know,  I can look later tonight.

Looks like bb2.html is updated every 5 minutes, what is the command to generate bb2.html by command line ?
