Increase speed of Office Merge - Impact of decreasing polling interval?


I am new to Office Merge and notice when using Office Merge to populate the Document's prefix only it takes 90 - 120 seconds. Is this normal?

The Office Merge guide suggests as a solution, "you can edit the eB Document Creation Service parameters to reduce the polling interval for new jobs by changing the Reset Interval value for the service:" from the default value of 300 seconds to 30 seconds. Are there any concerns, such as a reduction in general system performance, if I reduce this polling interval? Are there any known or expected negative affects for reducing the value?

Thank you - Patrick
