Jeff (and anyone else),
A question about CSC...
Up until a couple of weeks ago, I was running the D.N
client for Win98 as the "standard config" out of the box -- i.e., no
changes to the settings. The keys that I was running were small in
nature (no bigger than 8*2^ )... so I was refreshing the keyspace
Just for kicks, I reviewed my settings and decided to
increase the preferred packet size from the default of 30 (at least, I
thought it was 30) to the max at 33. This has caused one major
change to the client. I am now processing keys that are 32*2^ in
size... With running 10 packets before I fetch/flush....and each key
taking 3 1/2 hours (just upgraded the latest client this morning)....
it takes me a day and a half before I deliver my results.
Is that necessary bad? Am I hurting the overall performance by
having the fletch/flush take so long?
