General Settings

Views per Cycle – it is the number of impressions of each ad in set, the weight of which is set to 10. The cycle is considered finished in the case if all connected ads (max weight) were shown this number of times. Ads with less weight will be shown less frequently (weight 10 – 100%, weight 3 – 30%, etc). On the basis of this value is calculated the relative ratio of ad impressions. When the cycle is finished all relative counters reset to 0 and the cycle begins anew. Each reset of cycle requires a separate SQL query. The higher the value, the less additional requests will be fulfilled. However, the larger the value, the greater the probability of occurrence of overflow error (do not set this parameter to the max integer value).
