Polling configuration

The GitLab UI polls for updates for different resources (issue notes, issue titles, pipeline statuses, etc.) on a schedule appropriate to the resource.

In "Application settings -> Real-time features" you can configure "Polling interval multiplier". This multiplier is applied to all resources at once, and decimal values are supported. For the sake of the examples below, we will say that issue notes poll every 2 seconds, and issue titles poll every 5 seconds; these are not the actual values.
