WSAGetUdpRecvMaxCoalescedSize function (ws2tcpip.h)

Retrieves the maximum size of a received, coalesced message for a UDP socket.


INT WSAGetUdpRecvMaxCoalescedSize(
  [in]  SOCKET Socket,
  [out] DWORD  *MaxCoalescedMsgSize


[in] Socket

A descriptor that identifies a UDP socket.

[out] MaxCoalescedMsgSize

Type: DWORD*

A pointer to a DWORD. On success, the function sets the DWORD to the maximum coalesced message size used on the socket for UDP receive coalescing.

Return value

On success, the function returns 0. Otherwise, a value of SOCKET_ERROR is returned, and you can retrieve a specific error code by calling WSAGetLastError.


UDP receive coalescing is supported through the UDP_RECV_MAX_COALESCED_SIZE socket option. WSAGetUdpRecvMaxCoalescedSize is a type-safe wrapper for getting this socket option, and we recommend it over getsockopt.
