I think if the size of the message you have to pass, is small (a few
integers or so), you should use Erlang message passing across nodes. It
*should* be more efficient, fault tolerant and easy to handle compared to
TCP sockets. You can use *gproc* to register client processes and lookup
them at admin node while sending messages.

By the way, you can add *rpc* to that list which I have not used so much.
