Gather output method for net.js module? #5151

I have a list of Buffer data to send by network and I want to find a convenient interface to do that.

In libuv, the uv_write function can receive a list of uv_but_t as parameter to write data in batch. But I can not find the equivalent in the js layer (in net.js and StreamWrap class).

So I have to send the buffers individually in a loop or create a big buffer by concating all the buffers together before sending.

Is there any other good suggestion to do this job?

No, those are the two options.

Concatenating everything in one big buffer gives the best performance right now (highest throughput and lowest latency) but that might change, see joyent/libuv#742.
