Subject Re: Suggestion for improvement on ActiveMQ socket buffer sizing.
Date Wed, 13 Jan 2016 23:36:39 GMT
Rob,

Also, can you think of a reason why the ioBufferSize on the TCP transport
connector should not default to being the same size as the prevailing
socket buffer size when this flag is true?

​Regardless of the inclusion of this flag I don't understand why one would
choose to make the ioBufferSize smaller than socketBufferSize. Can someone
explain that one?

Incidentally the resultant behavior of the TCP transport when the
ioBufferSize is configured to be _larger_ than the socket's buffer size
(accidentally or otherwise) is not defined.
​

Thanks,
Paul
