CONFIG_NET_TCP_RETRY_COUNT

Maximum number of TCP segment retransmissions

Type: int

Help

The following formula can be used to determine the time (in ms) that a segment will be be buffered awaiting retransmission: n=NET_TCP_RETRY_COUNT Sum((1<<n) * NET_TCP_INIT_RETRANSMISSION_TIMEOUT) n=0 With the default value of 9, the IP stack will try to retransmit for up to 1:42 minutes. This is as close as possible to the minimum value recommended by RFC1122 (1:40 minutes). Only 5 bits are dedicated for the retransmission count, so accepted values are in the 0-31 range. It’s highly recommended to not go below 9, though. Should a retransmission timeout occur, the receive callback is called with -ECONNRESET error code and the context is dereferenced.
