Hi,

 

It there any documentation on how to manually select the earlier key space
first, to help speed up the rotation process? 

 

Cheers

Jarod

Hi,

The logic we use selects the oldest first. Don't worry about the rotation;
spaces get re-issued eventually. The space for rc5-72 is very big, so we'll
be doing this for a while yet.

Kind regards,
Mike

I have a couple systems that I sneaker net using a usb scandisk to
exchange the work units.  And the new work units to a system are added
to the buff-in file using the -import function.  In the past I have
added different sized work units to the buffer file, and have noticed
that the dnetc client first chooses any partially crunched units and
completes those before starting on wholly uncrunched units.  I've also
noticed that if different sized work units are added to the buff-in
file, that the dnetc client will start crunching the smaller units (like
a 16 stats unit work unit before a 32 stats unit work unit) and work up
to completing the largest stats unit work units last.  What I'm
wondering is if there is any work unit date/age selection involved so
that the oldest work units in the buff-in file would be completed before
newer ones were??
