OMI - Multiple Requests per Message

Draft MDC Standard

Right Hand Pointer

B.9 Multiple requests per message

The provision of many requests and many responses per message spreads the overhead of message transmission across many transactions, especially when the agent can combine requests from many client programs. Even for a single M[UMPS] client, many set and kill transactions may profitably be combined, although the M[UMPS] client must usually await the response to other types of operations before proceeding. Non-M[UMPS] clients, and perhaps highly optimized M[UMPS] clients, could, however, usefully combine other operations, for example, to request many items from the database at once.
