Set log message queue size

This policy controls the maximum number of queued log messages.

The messages in the queue are sent to syslog asynchronously. During normal operation, if the number of messages in the queue reaches the value set for this parameter, no new messages are added until the size of the queue decreases below the maximum size you have specified. If the logging level is set to DEBUG, however, this policy's value is automatically multiplied by a factor of 4 to allow additional messages to be logged.

The value must be a positive integer. The default value is 256.

Setting this parameter to zero (0) disables the message queue, and causes all log messages to be written to the syslog facility synchronously. In most cases, disabling the message queue degrades system performance, and in extreme cases, may cause a dead lock with the syslog daemon during log rotations. Therefore, Centrify recommends that you never set this parameter value to 0.

This group policy modifies the logger.queue.size setting in the Centrify DirectControl configuration file.
