seems to work fine Calling recv() one byte at a time will negatively impact performance. There is a certain amount of overhead on each call -- the transition to kernel mode, file descriptor lookup, dispatch to the protocol-specific driver, buffer/queue locking, etc. Calling recv() with larger buffers greatly decreases the average overhead per byte.
it should still fix some issue I am building a client using Python's socket.socket class that receives data which varies in size (usually between 500 and 5,000 bytes but it is theoretically possible for the client socket to receive 500,000 bytes). I am also writing the server that will communicate with this client socket. , All you're doing is wasting memory on an epic scale.
Socket C handle recv() and send() at the same time
hop of those help? As stated in comments, your server does nothing until recv() returns zero or -1, which mean the client has disconnected or aborted the connection respectively. As your client does neither of those things, you have an application-induced deadlock.
Python IRC ChatBot hangs on socket.recv after seemingly random time even though socket.settimeout is 8
should help you out Hey so I decided to create an IRC ChatBot whose sole purpose it is to read incoming messages from Twitch Chat and if a giveaway is recognized by a keyword it's supposed to enter the giveaway by sending !enter in Chat. , I think you've missunderstood how timeout work on the socket.
ready = select.select([s], , , timeout_in_seconds)
data = s.recv(1024)
from select import epoll, EPOLLIN
poll = epoll()
events = poll.poll(1) # 1 sec timeout
for fileno, event in events:
if event is EPOLLIN and fileno == s.fileno():
data = s.recv(1024)
This might help you You don't need to open/connect 2 separate listening ports in order to implementing bi-directional communication. TCP is bi-directional, you only need one connection. However, you are enabling non-blocking socket I/O on both ends, but you are not actually using non-blocking I/O correctly. In particular, you are not handling the WSAEWOULDBLOCK error code at all, which is reported by recv() when there is no data available to read, and by send() when the receiver has too much data to read and cannot receive new data yet. If you want to use threads, then use separate threads for reading and sending, and forget non-blocking I/O altogether. But make sure you are defining your threads correctly (you thread procedure is missing a required input parameter!).
