Rather than asking for events over the entire period in the event arm at once, SOD breaks all of the event work up into smaller pieces. This allows SOD to begin processing data for the first events in a run without having to wait for the retrieval of all of the events. The value of this property determines the size of the pieces. The piece size should be large enough so that an event is returned for every query, but not so large that an overwhelming number of events is returned each time. The default value is 7 days, and this should be fine for most runs.
