Hi Justin,

The clients  always poll the server, since the server does not provide a notification interface (yet). But it will only poll the root directory to ensure nothing changed (by checking the ETag value). So that's actually a very cheap operation ( a single HTTP request).

Locally, it monitors the file system for changes using the operating system's notification system. Due to limitiations in some of them, it will still do a sweep every 5 minutes (as opposed to every 30 seconds in 1.3). We are trying to further optimize this in forthcoming releases.
