Property Value

Type: System.Int32

The maximum number of bytes that are used to buffer incoming messages in memory. The default value is 65,536 bytes.

This property only applies to the headers of streamed messages.

This value should be at least the maximum possible size of the SOAP headers, which are read in buffered mode.

The value of this property must be less than or equal to MaxMessageSize and must be larger than the size of the headers of the message. Otherwise, the channel throws an exception.

If you receive more data than you can buffer, the channel throws a CommunicationException, which contains QuotaExceededException as an inner exception.
