Loki boltdb-shipper resync_interval

The documentation is not clear on resync_interval. I can contribute these back if one of the developers can clarify this:

Questions:

  • What is the recommended value, lets say for a setup with 1TB of logs using S3/Minio?
  • What the pros/cons of a small value (5s) vs a large value (15 mins); is it purely performance or can there be any data loss if the loki server restarts and local cache directories are not persistent?
