See question in subject. That is, if the user has established a session, but is otherwise inactive, will the client continue to make calls every so often back to the server?
What is the frequency of those calls?
(I'm trying to determine a valid session timeout setting for a load balancer.)

The client does have a heartbeat that it sends to the server to renew its session. This happens about every 15 seconds whether the client is active or idle. If the client has experienced an interruption (i.e. temporary loss of connection to the server), it tries every 5 seconds until the connection is re-established. The heartbeat will stop if the client is closed, crashes or the connection to the server is fatally severed.
