I think it's the number of messages that really matter, not the total  
size...

Using passive or {active, once} when dealing with sockets is always a  
good idea. However, while TCP will adjust the flow to accommodate your  
consumer's speed, UDP will simply just drop packets when you cannot  
process them fast enough.
Just something to keep in mind.
