Isn't that an inherent capability of TCP?
Sure, that's one way when bandwidth is the issue. There are other issues
though, and just closing the connection on the client if you do not want
any traffic is a bit blunt. It also does not give the client any idea
when it is ok to retry.
If it is not automatic, maybe it would only be up to the log receiver
appropriately decrease the receive buffers on their incoming sockets?
This is not a problem I care, the kernel already does it quite well.
