Subject RE: APR_BUCKET_BUFF_SIZE question
Date Thu, 10 Jul 2003 00:25:36 GMT
I figured it has to do something with the way pools work. Would it make a
difference if the buffer size used is always a multiple of
APR_BUCKET_BUFF_SIZE? Like 16, 32, 64?

Do you know where the 8K number come from? Is it an empirical number or a
theoretical one?

That's what apr_brigade_partition() is for.  Does that not get you what
you want?  And anyway, having a runtime-configurable buffer size would
make the bucket allocator WAY more complicated and less efficient...
