We study the net-baryon production at forward rapidities within the Color Glass Condensate paradigm. At high energy regime, the leading baryon production mechanism is shown to change from recombination to independent fragmentation. The nuclear configurational entropy (NCE) constructed upon forward scattering amplitudes allows to predict the two free parameters that govern the anomalous dimension of the target gluon distribution. The global minimum of the NCE indicates a point of stability in pp/pA/AA collisions at LHC energies, corroborating and matching RHIC data for hadron spectra measured in pp and dAu collisions at RHIC energies, with accuracy between 1.2 and 1.8%, respectively, for the two free parameters.
