This can ease the load on operating system and drive controller and thus help
with achieving better input bandwidth if disk and burner are not on independent

modesty_on_drive= might hamper output bandwidth and cause buffer underruns.
.br
A new use case is to work around the poor simultaneous performance of multiple
burn runs on Linux kernel 3.16 and alike. Here it is not about giving the
hard disk enough time to fill the fifo, but about keeping ioctl(SG_IO) from
blocking for a longer time and thus blocking all other burn runs.
.br
To have max_percent larger than the burner's best actual
buffer fill has the same effect as min_percent==max_percent. Some burners
do not use their full buffer with all media types. Watch output "[buf xy%]"
of option -v to get an impression of the actual buffer usage. Some burners
are not suitable because they report buffer fill with granularity too large
in size or time.
in size or time, or because they go to full speed only when their buffer is
full.
.br
If a write attempt is delayed, the program will wait for a number of
microseconds which is given by parameter "min_usec" before inquiring the buffer
again. iIf more retries occur, this waiting time between inquiries increases
up to the value of parameter "max_usec".
.br
If the delay lasts longer than the number of seconds given by parameter
"timeout_sec", then mode 1 is set 0 and normal burning goes on.
.br
Mode 0 disables this feature. Mode -1 keeps it unchanged. Default is:
.br
modesty_on_drive=0:min_percent=65:max_percent=95
0:min_percent=65:max_percent=95:timeout_sec=120:
min_usec=10000:max_usec=100000
.br
Percentages are permissible in the range of 25 to 100.
The defaults of cdrskin are good for IDE problems. With concurrent Linux SG_IO
problems on modern hardware, higher min_percent and lower usec might yield
better buffer fills while still avoiding the problem:
.br
min_percent=90:max_percent=95:min_usec=5000:max_usec=25000
