large rate performance #3

Comparing the performance of brake with rates 10.000 and 100.000 there isn't much of a difference in throughput. I wonder why that is...


I'm implementing an internatl length option so that more than one byte is sent per data-event, if rate is too big and/or period too small.

Super old issue, but works well now with big data™:

$ brake 1000000 /dev/urandom | pv > /dev/null
^C75MB 0:00:08 [   1MB/s] [          <=>                                                        ]
