How to reduce Confluence notification polling?

In my access logs, my server is handling hundreds of requests a minute (in the middle of the night) from people's browsers pinging the server for notifications.  And to make it worse, each tab is independently pinging the server causing even more load.  Is there a way to reduce this polling interval?  Just seems like unnecessary overhead.

I've read https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONF43/Configuring+Workbox+Notifications but that appears to be how often the in-app notifications work between other apps, like JIRA.

Example from logs:

2015-10-23 02:04:20,702 INFO [http-nio-8090-exec-5] [atlassian.confluence.util.AccessLogFilter] doFilter userA GET http://wiki.company.com/rest/mywork/latest/status/notification/count 4183556 23 10.23.21.111

Hey there,

Go to the Logging and Profiling page and check if the "atlassian.confluence.util.AccessLogFilter" entry is in there. If yes, you can remove it or change its level.

Cheers,
