forcing out buffered transmit data

OSR_Community_UserOSR_Community_User Member Posts: 110,217
I am building an application with both RPC and bulk data transfer
elements. The various streams are uncorrelated. I believe I want
the Nagel algorithm and significant buffering to achieve good
efficiency during bulk data transfer. But when I receive an RPC
message (very likely to be a small packet) I want to force the
transmission to occur immediately since the thread issuing the RPC
will immediately block waiting on the response. To be more precise,
I want to force immediate transmission of any buffered send requests
when the RPC thread blocks on a read request.

Is there a TDI-level way to achieve this? Ideally I would like
a solution works under W98 as well as NT4/W2K.

    Disable the nagel algorithm.
