What is the minium time to re-scrape a tracker for a different hash?

Recommended Posts

If I scrape a tracker for hashes 1- 73 should I wait 60 seconds (or min_interval) before scraping for hashes 74 - n or is it acceptable to scrape for the next set of hashes immediately?

I've seen that link before... and maybe I'm an idiot but I didn't see anything there about how often scrapes should be done (other than min_interval). Another way to look at what I am asking is "does min_interval apply to how often you can scrape for a hash or set of hashes, or does min_interval apply to all scrapes regardless of which hashes you are scraping for?". Also the FAQ link in your signature is broken.

the minimum number of seconds for the client to wait before scraping the tracker again.

Does that apply to all scrape requests? I assume if I scrape for a18f7339c128d8b494bf02c993e950f712363405, ..., 65b6d9e2912c1a7167977f5caae5df10030d1243 (73 info hashes) I should wait min_request_interval before I scrape for those hashes again, but should I wait min_request_interval to scrape for the next 73 unique hashes or is it acceptable to scrape them immediately?
