It's the interval of your server checks. The resolution is sent at the same
frequency as the checks. The reason is that in environments using dynamic
server addresses, you definitely need to check your address at the same
frequency you care for the server's availability. In addition, in some
fast-recycling environments (AWS used to be like this, I don't know if
it's still the case), when you shut down your server, it was possible that
its IP address was reassigned so fast that the server didn't even have the
time to appear dead, and the traffic could continue to be delivered to
someone else's server!

If it bothers you (I don't really see why), you can increase the "inter"
value on your servers to check them less often and as such refresh their
address less often.

Hoping this helps,
