Are the values in /proc/sys/net/sctp/sctp_[rw]mem honored? Or are they overridden by those in /proc/sys/net/core/[rw]mem_*

Furthermore, the kernel documentation states that sctp_wmem has no effect, but makes no such mention for sctp_mem and sctp_rmem.

We are using LKSCTP version 1.0.16 and have configured the SCTP configuration parameters as follows:

SctpInitMaxAttempts : 10
SctpInitRTO : 3000
SctpMinRTO : 1000
SctpMaxRTO : 60000

We observed that SCTP:INIT re-transmission is occurring at interval 6,12,24.., 6,12,24.., 6,12,24....... As per our understanding re-transmission should occur at interval 3,6,12,24..., 3,6,12,24...3,6,12,24... since SctpInitRTO=3000.

Could you please let us know if it is an expected behavior or not. Also why re-transmission interval is not started with 3,6,12,24...
