22.16.13. Configuring the Poll Interval

To change the default poll interval, add the following options to the end of a server or peer command:
minpoll value and maxpoll value
Options to change the default poll interval, where the interval in seconds will be calculated by raising 2 to the power of value, in other words, the interval is expressed in log2 seconds. The default minpoll value is 6, 26 equates to 64s. The default value for maxpoll is 10, which equates to 1024s. Allowed values are in the range 3 to 17 inclusive, which equates to 8s to 36.4h respectively. These options are for use with the peer or server. Setting a shorter maxpoll may improve clock accuracy.
