maxDist value varies (in forwarders)

Communicator

I've noticed that the maxDist value in the props.conf on various lightweight forwarders varies. I've never explicitly set the value. I'm wondering how and why it is getting set from the default. It seems almost random depending on the forwarder I look at. (from 500 to 888)

Is it something I should manually adjust?

This is a parameter set by automatic sourcetype learning. There is no value in you setting this on your own.
