Not sure what that means exactly... Please note that SCTP
provides congestion and flow control and might therefore delay
the sending of the message. You can circumvent these mechanisms.

You can set the number of retransmissions to 0 and have no
retransmissions at all. Or you can limit the time to 1 ms and
would not get any substantial buffering in the stack (for
the price of high probability of abandoning).

So what is a concrete example where you need a combination of
the above policies?

Best regards
