max length with Dropped log message: message too long (>64K ...)


Koper, Dies <diesk@...>
 

Hi,

When my app outputs more than 64K of text, I get a message "Dropped log message: message too long (>64K without a newline).
When my app outputs much less than 64K of text, I get the app's output.
When my app outputs just under 64K of text, nothing is output: neither the error message, nor the app's output.

What is exactly the limit under which output is still guaranteed, and can we update the error message accordingly?

I tried to read the source code. Not sure if the limit is because messages are sent over UDP (UDP max data length is 65,507), or due to other data that is included in the transmission of messages (timestamp, app id, etc.).

Cheers,
Dies Koper
