    301 == Upload certificates ==
    302 {{{
    303 <dont_generate_upload_certificates/>
    304 }}}
    305 Don't put upload certificates in results. This makes result generation a lot faster, since no encryption is done, but you lose protection against DoS attacks on your upload servers.
    306 {{{
    307 <ignore_upload_certificates/>
    308 }}}
    309 If upload certificates are not generated, this option must be enabled to force the file upload handler to accept files.

    311 == Default preferences ==
    312 {{{
    313 <default_disk_max_used_gb> X </default_disk_max_used_gb>
    314 }}}
    315 Sets the default value for the `disk_max_used_gb` preference so it's consistent between the scheduler and web pages. The scheduler uses it when a request for work doesn't include preferences, or the preference is set to zero. The web page scripts use it to set the initial value when displaying or editing preferences the first time, or when the user never saved them. Default is 100.
    316 {{{
    317 <default_disk_max_used_pct> X </default_disk_max_used_pct>
    318 }}}
    319 Sets the default value for the `disk_max_used_pct` preference so its consistent between the scheduler and web pages. The scheduler uses it when a request for work doesn't include preferences, or the preference is set to zero. The web page scripts use it to set the initial value when displaying or editing preferences the first time, or when the user never saved them. Default is 50.
    320 {{{
    321 <default_disk_min_free_gb> X </default_disk_min_free_gb>
    322 }}}
    323 Sets the default value for the `disk_min_free_gb` preference so its consistent between the scheduler and web pages. The scheduler uses it when a request for work doesn't include preferences. The web page scripts use it to set the initial value when displaying or editing preferences the first time, or when the user never saved them. Also, the scheduler uses this setting to override any smaller preference from the host, it enforces a 'minimum free disk space' to keep from filling up the drive. Recommend setting this no smaller than .001 (1MB or 1,000,000 bytes). Default is .001.

    340 In each scheduler reply, tell the clients to do another scheduler RPC after at most X seconds, regardless of whether they need work.  This is useful, e.g., to ensure that in-progress jobs can be canceled in a bounded amount of time.
