I notice that the default setting is interval =60. In the latest Android port, it’s now set at 0. And the setting is configurable on any device.
So here’s a couple of questions:
Can anyone suggest an algorithm or some approach based on logic for users who wish to optimize cluster performance based on tweaking the rescan rate on each connected device? I am sure it depends on a lot of factors - but which factors - and then what?
It’s all down to how quickly you want your file changes to be picked up.
The scan time is based on your CPU speed + disk speed + number of files you have.
The slower the CPU or the slower the storage or the more files you have, it would make sense to increase the interval, that as a result will make file changes pick up more slowly, but at least it will not melt your machine.
