Cisco ASA 5585-X failover polltime

We have a 1Gbps dedicated fiber link for failover.  The 1 second timer seems a bit long by today's standards.  Does anyone have a suggested polltime?  We can go as low as 200 msec but I feel as if there may be ramifications in do that.  The holdtimer can also be set that low.  Any

suggestions or real world numbers people use?

Thanks

Re: Cisco ASA 5585-X failover polltime

I currently use 300ms for the unit failover poll and 900ms for the hold time.  This gives us a 1 second failover with a maximum of 1 packet dropped (usually no dropped packets).
