Click Re-Apply Polling Intervals to apply the specified values for selected entities in this section to all objects in the database. See the instructions above.

Click Submit at the bottom of the page to use the current settings for new objects.

If you leave the page without submitting the changes, your settings will be applied to objects in the database, but will not be saved as default. For objects added to the database in the future, the default settings will be used. Not submitting the changes can result in different settings for objects that are already in the database, and different settings for newly added objects.
