Unless you've setup BrowsePoll in your cupsd.conf, CUPS isn't polling
every 30 seconds. More than likely the issue is with your desktop
If you *are* using BrowsePoll for some reason, change the
BrowseInterval and BrowseTimeout settings to control the polling
CUPS (cupsd) has a LOT of code in it to minimize CPU usage when idle.
The default settings can keep the scheduler idle for up to 1 day if
there is no interaction with it...
