Re: [ Logging properties ] change buffer size for Containers SDOUT

Eric Malm <emalm@...>

Hi, Fabien,

If you're running the buildpack staging tasks on Diego cells, Jim is
correct that the executor's log-streaming system currently imposes a
hard-coded 4-KiB limit on each log line. The Diego team has a story ( to increase that to 60
KiB that we expect to get to in a few weeks. The original limit was
introduced very early in the life of the executor component, and was likely
based on some too-restrictive assumptions about the maximum size of UDP
datagrams. We've since validated that on Linux and on Windows these
datagrams can contain a little less than 64KiB of data in their payload, so
the 60-KiB limit should be fine.

Hi Fabien,

It's a restriction that the Executor component of Diego implements. It's
not in the Loggregator code. I'm not sure of the where or why of it.

while developping an extension ofr a buildpack, related to logging

it seems to us that the buffer size is around 4000 caracters, which is
not what we would like.

We went through doppler metron and loggregator configurations & codes,
without success, to find out anything related to fixed-size logging

Do ou know where we should go to configure the size of the buffer being
flushed please ?

Many thanks for the time you took to read our very first question on this
