I'm writing a polling service that initialises a PIDataPipe:
Then every x seconds does this:
Lets say that my server is generating 2000 events every second, and I'm polling and getting 1000 events every second.
Does this mean that:
1 - On my first read after a second I get 1000 of the 2000 events generated in that second
2 - On my read after 2 seconds, I get the other 1000 events from the 1st second interval?
Or, does my first GetUpdateEvents clear the other 1000 events I didn't read so that when I read again after 2 seconds I'm getting new events rather than ones left over?
If it is the first case, is there a method to clear the pipe so I could do :
1 - Read 1000 events after a seond
2 - Clear the pipe
3 - Read 100 new events after 2 seonds
Couldn't see an obvious method in the SDK...
