class MaxSizePacketiser(Axon.Component.component)

This is a simple class whose purpose is to take a data stream and convert it into packets of a maximum size.

The default packet size is 1000 bytes.

This component was created due to limitations of multicast meaning packets get discarded more easily over a certain size.

Example usage:

    ReadFileAdaptor(file_to_stream, readmode="bitrate", bitrate=400000,
    blockise(), # Ensure chunks small enough for multicasting!
    Multicast_transceiver("", 0, "", 1600),

This component acts as a simple filter - data is expected on inboxes and packets come out the outbox.

This component does not terminate.

Methods defined here


You should be using the inbox/outbox interface, not these methods (except construction). This documentation is designed as a roadmap as to their functionalilty for maintainers and new component developers.
