Gateway authenticating DefaultLogin every 2 seconds. Should it?

I am now looking at an Ignition issue that looks weird. Attached is what I see in the log. The gateway Logs page shows that every 2 second it is trying to authenticate DefaultLogin on the domain controller. The Logs page is extremely slow; I can’t even set it to turn off Live Updates because it is unresponsive. The other gateway pages are not slow like this. I am concerned the gateway is needlessly trying to authenticate every 2 seconds and impacting performance. Do you expect the gateway to do this, or is this unusual behavior? If this is not normal, how do I stop it?

It was a client script doing it. Disabling the script did the trick
