Is there any noticeable difference in performance between the available six file pull order settings? I have always set it to
smallestFirst, because I thought that it would be more useful to get small files quicker, but the Docs specifically state that
random Pull files in random order. This optimizes for balancing resources among the devices in a cluster.
which would mean that
random is the best for optimal performance.
My question then would be - is it actually better to just use
random instead of the other ones in order to be able to download files quicker (especially in a multi-device environment), and if yes, how much of a difference will it make in reality?
Also, is there any performance impact of having Syncthing re-order the queue according to name/size/date when using the other options, especially on slower hardware?
