Used in: packet-speaker


Specifies the minimum outgoing packet volume which must exist for the speaker daemon to be activated.

Performance Impact

When the packet load is relatively low it may be more efficient for the speaker's operations to be performed on the publisher's thread. When the packet load is high utilizing the speaker allows the publisher to continue preparing packets while the speaker transmits them on the network.


The following table describes the elements you can define within the packet-speaker element.

Element Required/Optional Description
<minimum-packets> Required Specifies the minimum number of packets which must be ready to be sent for the speaker daemon to be activated. A value of 0 will force the speaker to always be used, while a very high value will cause it to never be used. If unspecified, it will be set to match the socket send buffer size, this is the default.
