[PROXYPER] How can I get more then 1000 blocks?

the 308 proxies have a special "logic" that adjusts the buffer limit
according to the speed of the connecting clients. If you set the buffer to a
very high number (e.g. 15000) and have only two slow machines, the proxy will
calculate a lower block limit. If you set the limit to 1000 blocks and have
some machines with about 20 Mkeys/sec. connected, the proxy will raise the
buffer limit to get more blocks from the server.
If you know exactly what number of blocks you need, you cann add the line
to the proxyper.ini file (section rc564). Then the proxy will stick to the
limit you specify.
The number of received blocks differs a little bit, so some "overshooting" is
possible - not exactly 1000 but sometimes 1013 or else.

Happy crunching,
