CONFIG_LOG_BACKEND_NET_MAX_BUF_SIZE

Max syslog message size

Type: int

Help

As each syslog message needs to fit to UDP packet, set this value so that messages are not truncated. The RFC 5426 recommends that for IPv4 the size is 480 octets and for IPv6 the size is 1180 octets. As each buffer will use RAM, the value should be selected so that typical messages will fit the buffer.
