Sets the amount of data per-peer to be queued by the UDP interconnect on receivers (when data is received but no space is available to receive it the data will be dropped, and the transmitter will need to resend it). Increasing the depth from its default value will cause the system to use more memory; but may increase performance. It is reasonable for this to be set between 1 and 10. Queries with data skew potentially perform better when this is increased. Increasing this may radically increase the amount of memory used by the system.
