--pending_proposals affects Dgraph insert&update performance? Are there any best practices for
--pending_proposals is way to for Dgraph to avoid having too many proposals(mutations) inside server. Default value of
--pending_proposals is 256 as of now, which should be good enough.
As such it should not affect insert and update performance. Its a way to throttle mutations. If we are seeing too many mutations or throttling by this, this mean processing of mutations is taking time. In my opinion, increasing its value will result in more number of pending proposals without additional processing benefits.
