Generally, during this type of “monitoring mode” the issuers processing memory is only loaded during the time of the initial poll, leaving the remainder of that time for monitoring, which does not involve any CPU loading. However, the drawback from this mode of polling is its inability to do effectively utilize the little time it is awarded.(Oliver,1997) For instance, if the entire process gets extensive, then the initial proposed episode of polling gets drawn out.
