[syslog-ng] so_rcvbuf default value of 0

Just looking for confirmation about the so_rcvbuf parameter for the
udp() source driver.

The default is 0. Does that mean that syslog-ng uses the default value
from the kernel?


cat /proc/sys/net/core/rmem_default

If that is true, then perhaps the syslog-ng admin docs could mention
that. I've scanned "man 7 socket" and don't seen anything that
suggests that a value of 0 for so_rcvbuf means that the socket will
inherit the value.

Thanks for the help!
