There are three things to consider in terms of whether the number of messages or the amount of data will have the largest impact on communications time.
<br>1)Behavior of the data - is it available all at once, in a steady stream, or erratically?
<br>2)Overhead of each message - how much does it cost to send?
<br>3)Reliability of the network: what is the chance of error?
<br>Ideally, we would have all of the data available immediately and would send it in one long message, resulting in minimal overhead. (Assuming, of course, that our communications ...
