Exclamation Boost solenoid

Me once again, this is the last hopefully!, i've cleaned out my boost solenoid with carb cleaner but have notice that when you slightly raise the revs from under the hood the solenoid ticks on off fast and continuously, i was wondering if this is actually normal as it seems like an odd thing to do?, thanks

When engine idles normal it does tick tick so when you rev, as engine revs faster would say the boost solenoid would tick faster................
