[Spread-users] Optimal message size.

I am writing an application that multicasts data messages that are of 
substantial size -- meaning there are at least one order of magnitude larger 
that the Ethernet MTU I am riding on.

The nature of my application will allow me to split them up into chucks of any 
size.  And I would much rather the memory footprint of my app to increase as 
opposed to Spread's.

So, since I can choose exactly how my message gets chopped up before I send it 
to Spread, what is the optimal size for the data buffer passed to 
"SP_multicast()" assuming 1 group and assuming n groups?
