8027:20181106:232953.096 cannot obtain configuration data from server at "hostA":
This message does not make sense, and the reason for that is it is showing the expected_len instead of the reserved size, which it is actually checking, retrieved from the PDU to indicate the size of the compressed data uncompressed.
Looks like an honest copy and paste bug from the uncompressed section above it, where it does compare ZBX_MAX_RECV_DATA_SIZE to expected_len.
