RE: [sdr-radio-com] SDR data traffic handling
It’s client / server using point-to-point communications. Latency depends to a large extent on your IP network, also this depends on the software (which needs improving).

I'm in the process of building up a remote SDR site (to finally escape from PLC) and have a question about how datatraffic is handled with the SDR-Radio server.
Is all traffic from connected SDRs running through a central server?
If so, is the performance of connected receivers "shared" if traffic load becomes heavier? Or is the central server just a "patch panel" for all receivers connected, so every connection is seperated without affecting each other?
I absolutely like the idea of sharing SDRs on the network, but I would also like to have optimal performance if i run my own SDR in a "private" connection, aiming for minimal latency and optimal data transfer.
How is this datatraffic handled and is there a performance difference between running your own remote receiver through LAN or TCP/IP or through the SDR-Radio server network? I'm curious how exactly this handling of data streams is organized?
