5 minutes is an awful lot of polling?  Not hardly.  That's the 
standard for network management services of just about 
anything I can think of (HPOV, NetView, etc.)  5 seconds 
would be too much, 1 minute would be a lot.  5 minutes is 
hardly a blip on the radar screen.  I've had to fight to get my 
NOC to understand that anything more often than 5 minutes, 
and they won't have time to process the alerts, anything more 
and they risk being late to the party (whatever that error or fault 
may be).

btw 5 minutes is an awful lot of polling. consider whether you can live with
less fine-grain information. I run now at 15 minutes monitoring an E1, but if you have a T3 that would
not be a good idea.
