As often as you like [1]. It's just a DNS query, really cheap if there
is no update. However...

(a) Generally, there is just one update a day, if at all. Thus, checking
hourly won't gain you much.

(b) Updates tend to be more frequent after new SA releases, especially
minor updates (from 3.1.x to 3.2.0), not that much for micro version
updates (3.2.x). At this point, there haven't been any updates in,
err... weeks.
