Which ratio value to set in the configuration is a matter of taste or, more precisely, depends on each indivudual application's demands. A value of 1.0 (100%) means: only files with 100% payload, so no gaps at all, are acceptable. This means that for every store that contains at least one new version of an already existing entity, the corresponding storage file will contain the slightest gap, thus dropping below the demanded ratio of 100% and as a consequence, will be retired on the next occasion. This very aggressive cleanup strategy will keep the disc space usage at a perfect minimum, but at the cost of enormous amounts of copied data, since virtually every store will cause one or more storage files to be retired and their content be shifted into a new file.
Respectively, a value of 0.0 (0%) means something like: "Never care about gaps, just fill up the disc until it bursts." This keeps the disc write loads for the file cleanup at 0, but at the cost of rapidly eating up disc space.
