Subject Re: Using two threads to read data from disk and send out in DataXceiver ?

Hi Martin,

Not sure what you mean - why would it be faster to split it into two
threads? Keep in mind that there is a TCP send buffer so if the client
is reading faster than the disk, the server's sends won't block
