First off, some terminology: when you say 'the master', you really mean
'the central manager' (or, more accurately, the collector)

And to answer your question, yes, information you get from the
collector will be outdated. The update interval controls how
out of date your updates might be. Make the update interval smaller, 
and the collector will be more up-to-date.
