This variable helps you tune one element of low-level socket communication between a client and server. AGS_RECEIVE_BUFFER_SIZE controls the size of the low-level receive buffer. The variable must be set before the creation of any sockets. The default value is "16384".

Note that because ACUCOBOL-GT does not control this buffer, changes in its value are not displayed in response to a U debugger command to list runtime memory usage.

Changes to the default value may have little, if any, noticeable effect. The default value is probably adequate in most situations. See Buffer Size Considerations for tips on how to use this variable in a thin client environment.
