I can do this on a global level but if I try:

destination loghost { tcp("loghost" port(5140)); log_fifo_size(1000); };

The documentation showed log_fifo_size applicable to a file destination 
but does not list it under udp and tcp destinations.

If I apply it at a global level is it only applicable to file destinations?

I am using version 1.6.2
