[ndnSIM] FIB Size?

We are trying to get a handle on how to control the size of FIBs (finite
and infinite sized FIBs). I found a somewhat relevant reply on the mailing
list, but could not understand what do you mean when you are referring
that FIBs are not dynamically updated and ones simulation is responsible in
defining appropriate number of FIB entries. Does it mean that we have to
somehow initialize and explicitly allocate space at compile time? What is
the default size of FIBs, if we do not allocate explicit space for the,?
I have attached the excerpt from your reply in an earlier message:

*>* 1. I am going to formulate size of buffer memory for ndnSim
routers. In topology we set them based on packets (I think size of
every packet should be 1024). I am wondering if CS, FIB and PIT are
included in this space or not. *
Your reply: I'm not entirely sure what your question asks. You can set
individual limits on CS and PIT sizes (in number of content objects).
FIB is not updated dynamically, so your simulation is responsible in
defining appropriate number of FIB entries. What do you mean "in
topology we set..."? Are you referring to transmission queue sizes?
If yes, this is totally independent of NDN or ndnSIM.
Thank you very much.
