I am new to the group, appreciate if you could answer a couple of queries I

Recently in one of my setups, I got this message continuously.

too many recvbufs allocated (40) - ntpd

I checked the code(ntp-4.2.0a) and found that ntpd has 40 recv buffers
allocated for the recv packets.

My questions:

1. What situation causes such syslogs to pop-up ?

2. Is it safe to increase the RECV_TOMANY to a larger value ?
