Drastic increase in number of due cards after FSRS?

Hi, I’ve recently updated to the new scheduler and am using this as well as the add-on allowing for “easy” weekends (FSRS4AnkiHelper). For around the first week or so, I noticed an uptick in the number of due cards, around 20% more than I would have had under the old scheduler. Now, three weeks in, I’m consistently receiving around 300%-400% more cards than I did under the old scheduler. Does anyone know what might be happening and how to fix this?
Many thanks,

What target retention have you set?

Decrease your desired retention will help. I guess your previous real retention is lower than 90%. The default desired retention of FSRS 90%. Higher retention usually means higher workload.

Ah, thank you, that’s very helpful, I’ll try decreasing it and see what happens!
