When I do a
pin ls on my server, each CID is labelled with one of direct/recursive/indirect. Since the server makes the effort to memorize the difference, I suspect they are in some circumstances treated differently. But I couldn’t find any documentation on this. Does anyone here know?
The reason I ask is that I find recursive pinning unsuitable for my use case, and therefore I traverse my data structures myself for pinning each piece of the puzzle. And I am wondering if I am missing out on something because of this.
