The benefits of frequent heartbeats are that connection problems will be 
detected sooner. The drawback is the network overhead. Heartbeat frames 
are very small so this should not pose a problem unless the network link 
is very expensive, or you have thousands of connections with heartbeats, 
or you are pushing the performance envelope.
