The polling interval is one way to control how often network traffic between the MC and remote agents needs to take place. Even though the typical traffic between the agent and MC is relatively low bandwidth, if you have a large number of hosts attempting to communicate over low-bandwidth WANs, you might want to increase the period between polls.
