Why are there a large number of connections requested by Hangfire?

We are doing a POC of Hangfire. I am using mostly the default settings as per the documentation to start hangfire server with SqlServer storage. I changed the worker count to 5 and using a connection factory instead of providing a connection string.
After starting the server I notice that there are lot of connections being requested almost every second. Once I change the QueuePollInterval from TimeSpan.Zero to TimeSpan.FromMinutes(1), then the connections are requested every minute.

From a previous dicussion on this forum, it is recommended to keep QueuePollInterval at zero. But based on what I’m seeing, this could put a lot of load on the Sql Server.

Is it ok to increase the QueuePollInterval as it fits us?

This is what I have in the startup code:

builder.Services.AddHangfire((sp, cfg) =>
    var connFactory = sp.GetService<IDbConnectionFactory>();
    .UseSqlServerStorage(() => connFactory?.GetNewConnection(),
    new Hangfire.SqlServer.SqlServerStorageOptions
        CommandBatchMaxTimeout = TimeSpan.FromMinutes(5),
        SlidingInvisibilityTimeout = TimeSpan.FromMinutes(5),
        QueuePollInterval = TimeSpan.Zero,
        UseRecommendedIsolationLevel = true,
        DisableGlobalLocks = true,

builder.Services.AddHangfireServer(options =>
    options.WorkerCount = 5;
    options.StopTimeout = TimeSpan.FromSeconds(5);

Thanks in advance
