The best thing to do is analyze the logs and calculate the best intervals,
adjust to suit.  You can change for example to stretch each bounce to take
longer each time.  There are also ways to turn off bouncing selectively, or
respond dynamically based on how the receiving end reacts to the bounce.  I
have found watching for a few days works.
