Issue Details

I am running into issues using network streams for a system utilizing numerous channels, datatypes and clients and am looking for best practices.

Solution

To condense the number of network streams required, condense all synchronous data , data collected at the same rate, in either arrays or clusters to be sent over as a single stream rather than multiple.
  1. This will additionally help any issues you're having with connection time as you're making a handful of network stream connections rather than a numerous group at once.
  2. Additionally this would allow for one to implement network streams for smaller sized asynchronous data, as the number of networks streams could still be manageable.

Additional Information

Network streams work off of a standard TCP connection, if one were attempting to make numerous of these connections at once, the time could adversely effect performance.
