I disabled WordPress Cron and configured a real Cron (Linux Cron) to hit wp-cron.php every 8 hours, but I'm not sure how it affects the behavior of WP Super Cache in Preload Mode.

As far as I know, WP Super Cache processes 100 posts, takes a break of 10 seconds, processes another 100 posts, takes a break of 10 seconds, and so on.

Suppose a website has 10,000 posts. I'm pretty sure the initial 100 posts will be processed the first time wp-cron.php is hit, but when will the other posts be processed? Will they wait until the next hit to wp-cron.php (+8 hours)?

Will they wait until the next hit to wp-cron.php (+8 hours)?

Yes.

That's why it's important to keep this duration shorter. I usually keep it to every 5 minutes.

PS: I know it's an old question. But, wanted to answer it anyway, if someone else has the same question in the future.
