The Decouple session agent decouples the capture pipeline from the socket receiving component and the remainder of the pipeline and throttles traffic spikes using an in-memory queue. For example, if there was a burst of traffic that exceeds the capacity of the remaining pipeline agents, the Decouple session agent queues this burst on the in-memory queue so that no hits are lost.
Unlike Extended Decouple, this session agent operates in-memory only and cannot spool hits to disk when volume is high. Consequently, this session agent is much simpler to configure. There is only one configuration option, the size of the in-memory queue.

||Specifies the maximum number of hits the memory queue can hold. Increasing the memory queue size increases competition for memory resources. The default value is 2500.|
