const OptionMaxRecvSize

Defined in


OptionMaxRecvSize supplies the maximum receive size for inbound messages. This option exists because the wire protocol allows the sender to specify the size of the incoming message, and if the size were overly large, a bad remote actor could perform a remote Denial-Of-Service by requesting ridiculously large message sizes and then stalling on send. The default value is 1MB.

A value of 0 removes the limit, but should not be used unless absolutely sure that the peer is trustworthy.

Not all transports honor this lmit. For example, this limit makes no sense when used with inproc.

Note that the size includes any Protocol specific header. It is better to pick a value that is a little too big, than too small.

This option is only intended to prevent gross abuse of the system, and not a substitute for proper application message verification.
