Description Murray Nesbitt 2005-08-05 09:02:59 UTC
The SendBufferSize directive, which is used to adjust the TCP send buffer size,
has existed for many years, but it would appear there has been no pressing need
for a companion directive to control the size of the TCP receive buffer.  We
have written an application that requires the ability to adjust the size of this

I have tried using apr_socket_opt_set, unfortunately the buffer size must be
modified prior to connect() or accept() (at least on Linux...).

I will follow up with a patch to support this functionality.  It's a very
straightforward change, and I've added English documentation for the new
directive.  It would be great to see it added!
