Determines the current minimum size, in kilobytes, of the buffer used to read event log records. The minimum size of this buffer can be adjusted by the programmer.


There are no arguments to this method.

Return value:

The size in kilobytes of the minimum read buffer. For example if the minimum buffer size is 32,768, this method will return 32. (32 KB.)


This example displays the current value of the minimum read buffer size.

  log = .WindowsEventLog~new
  say 'Current minimum size of the read buffer is:' log~minimumRead "KB"

::requires 'winSystm.cls'

/* Output might be:

Current minimum size of the read buffer is: 16 KB
