Advice on Update Frequency

I’ve some feeds which don’t update frequency, so if I mark them to check once a day and other feeds by default, does it mess up the working of the daemon? Is it advisable to keep different update frequency? I just want that update daemon may prioritize those feeds more which updates frequently. Any advice on that?

or If TT-RSS is smart enough to lower down the priority of feeds automatically which doesn’t update frequently?

No worries. The update daemon will check on each run which feeds need to be updated.
I have about 180 feeds and have set different update frequencies depending on how often there is new content.

[19:00:02/783] Scheduled 106 feeds to update...
[19:15:02/20574] Scheduled 12 feeds to update...
[19:30:03/31997] Scheduled 18 feeds to update...
[19:45:02/14945] Scheduled 105 feeds to update...
[20:00:02/26789] Scheduled 26 feeds to update...
[20:15:02/14300] Scheduled 18 feeds to update...
[20:30:01/27153] Scheduled 101 feeds to update...
[20:45:02/8390] Scheduled 14 feeds to update...
[21:00:02/19715] Scheduled 19 feeds to update...
[21:15:02/6101] Scheduled 104 feeds to update...

Why there is so much variation in your feeds count?

trying to predict how often the feed would update instead of making a simple http if-modified-since request seems like a lot of effort for very little gain.

As you can see I run the update daemon every 15 minutes but most feeds have an update frequency of 30/60 minutes or higher. That’s why in between only those with a frequency of 15 minutes get updated.

That’s understandable. Thanks
