Specifies the size of memory blocks the FairCom Server uses in conjunction with data and index cache buffers. To minimize interaction with the underlying system memory manager, the FairCom Server manages its own blocks of memory out of which the buffer pages are allocated. The FairCom Server acquires one large block of memory and allocates smaller pieces as needed. If you are attempting to limit memory use by reducing IDX_MEMORY and/or DAT_MEMORY, set BUFR_MEMORY to about one eighth of the smaller of IDX_MEMORY and DAT_MEMORY.

Default: 64000
