Environment

PAM server version 3.x

Resolution

  • Settings / Global Settings / Applet Customization / Buffer Size.

The first one is a global setting set by the administrators for all the users and devices. 
The second one overrides the global definition for a particular device. 
The third one overrides the global settings for a particular user and can be modified by the own user without any admin privilege.
