[mythtv-users] Mythbackend XML Status Not responding?

I've started running the mythtv-status program which connects to the backend
and requests the XML information.  Occasionally I get the following message:

Sorry, failed to fetch http://localhost:6544/xml: Connection to MythTV timed

How often is too often to request http://localhost:6544/xml?  If I run
mythtv-status every 5 minutes and I see "timed out" two or three times a day
(sometimes two runs in a row, sometimes hours apart, usually at the top of
the hour), am I adding undue stress to the backend?
