the tick rate for the sensor drops significantly. we were wondering what determines the sensor tick rates?

Hi Leo - the sensor basically runs in a loop, waiting as needed to meet the minimum interval (default 30 seconds). So if the sensor takes 10 seconds to evaluate, the next tick will be 20 seconds later. If the sensor takes 35 seconds to evaluate, the next tick should happen immediately. If you're seeing the tick rate slow done, my guess would be that the sensor is taking a long time to evaluate.
