Main Queue Configurations

Postby leonidas » Fri May 12, 2017 7:44 pm

I have begun work on some main queue configs starting with a few snippets I have found in previous efforts. I apologize for these questions in advance as I'm sure they're very basic. The configurations have almost nothing leftin them but I am reluctant to just delete them without understanding what it might be doing. I would appreciate it if anyone can comment on what these two are doing (if anything)

queue.size- "1000000")

Since this is all there is, are other variables active with default values (for example
queue.discardmark="9750" (default?)
queue.type="direct" (default?)

2nd is


Same question: are other variables active with default values?

By the way, looking at some other notes, it looks like they were trying at some point to do this

1. Leave the queue.size at the default (10,000?)
2. Use a discard mark of 9750 (default?)
3. Set a discard severity of 1 or 2 (default is "0? means discard all, true?)

How should that be coded?

Thank you in advance for your time and help!
