It's odd that you had to set it so high; as Thomas K. said, the
heartbeat runs in its own C++ thread by zeromq, so the fact that your
machine is busy should have little impact on this, unless your
computations are hitting your box so hard and causing so much virtual
memor paging that the thread-switching latency at the OS level is
worse than 3s.
