Just because an answer is "obvious" doesn't mean it is correct.

The frequency with which you check for the event depends only on how quickly you have to react to it when it does happen. If the SLA says that the system must respond with 15 seconds of the event happening, then you have to check for it at least that often. It doesn't matter whether it happens every 30 seconds or every 30 days.

I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.
