in the past we have experienced a few issues where time critical clients did not react quickly enough to updates on the filesystem.

In some of those cases the reason was a windows default setting for the SMB2 cache that prohibited the client to react fast enough.
Please read the following Microsoft article for further reference:

Good results were achieved by deactivating the cache setting on affected clients:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Lanmanworkstation\Parameters\DirectoryCacheLifetime = 0

This has recently been found to be effective under Windows 10 using DBM 'legacy' Archive tables.
