RP4VM - Logics to Find/Search for DataStore when automatically creating VMDK at Target

Hello there,

  We have tried to add VMDK in VM that protected by RP4VM. RP4VM will automatically create VMDK at target VM, but it took very long time for RP4VM to find datastore with sufficient space for VMDK creation. We have multiple DataStores for same VM, each Datastore contains only one VMDK. All datastores don't have enough space for new VMDK creation except the newly created one. From the logs below, RP4VM tried to find available datastore, and halt for about one minute for another try, then halt 30 or 48 minutes before next try. This behavior repeated till RP4VM find the desired datastore with enough space. Would like to understand how RP4VM search for datastore and how the sequence of datastore to be searched come from. Not every similar operations have same amount of retry caused by insufficient space in existing datastores, as shown in below log. Thanks for any help in advance.
