[erlang-questions] gen_sctp doesn't stream
Mon Mar 5 00:11:32 CET 2012
gen_tcp does let me stream data. The driver will put data into a queue and
block my process when the queue reaches a high water mark. Then it will allow
the process to continue when the low water mark is reached. I can push data
into a socket continuously as fast as it will go.
The gen_sctp driver is built on the UDP driver. There is no queue. If I send
too many packets I just get an eagain error code. It seems that the best I can
do is to keep polling until I can send the next message. Am I right?
