A Puppet task to get and set the value of TcpReceivePacketSize as a workaround for SIGRed.


Use the task tcpreceivepacketsize to set the value of TcpReceivePacketSize to 0xFF00 (255 bytes less than the max).


The task tcpreceivepacketsize has two parameters get and set.


Use get to find the current value for TcpReceivePacketSize and the status of the DNS service.

    "dns_status":  "Running",
    "TcpReceivePacketSize":  "0xFF00"


Use set to set the value of tcpreceivepacketsize to 0xFF00. Optionally use the parameter restartdns to restart the DNS service after setting tcpreceivepacketsize.
