Some guidance please ?? with regards to chunks per compression work units - which I gather alters pigz' -b (block size) parameter. Is there a calculation based on system memory that gives you a good number to start with? The default is way up at 4096. I recently attempted to change the value in a VPS from 128 to 1024 and this caused backups times to more than quadruple and cause way higher server loads. Obviously not optimal to have backups now dragging into morning work hours. So I will set this one back. Is there a rule of thumb? Couldn't find any useful info in cpanel or pigz docs. And why is it that pigz docs say default is 128, and cpanel has chosen 4096 as the default? <= how did that figure come to be chosen?
