Detailed Description

RemoteViz

Settings that define a Client.

The application can query this object from a Client object. A Client object is passed to various listener methods such as ServiceListener::onConnectedClient and ServiceListener::onInitializedClient. Clients can also be queried using Service::getClient().

ClientSettings is used to set the network bandwidth to be used by the Client. This value is not a hard limit, but higher values imply higher image quality and higher frames per second. The policy can be set for each connection (see ConnectionSettings::setFrameEncodingPolicy). If a client has multiple connections, the bandwidth value for each connection is the client value divided by the number of connections.

If network calibration is enabled (true by default, see NetworkPerformance), when a client connects to the service, RemoteViz will measure the available network bandwidth. The default implementation of ServiceListener::onInitializedClient() will query this value (NetworkPerformance::getBandwidth) and call setBandwidth(). If the application already knows the available network bandwidth, it is not necessary to enable calibration, simply call setBandwidth().

To measure available network bandwidth, RemoteViz has to cause network congestion, which implies that the user is blocked for a period of time. Therefore RemoteViz only measures network bandwidth once, when the client first connects (and only if calibration is enabled). Of course network bandwidth can change at any time. If the application has new information about the available network bandwidth, setBandwidth() can be called at any time.

The application can query this object from a Client object. The Client object can obtained in, e.g., ServiceListener::onPendingCreateRenderArea().


Member Function Documentation

unsigned int RemoteViz::Rendering::ClientSettings::getBandwidth (  )  const

Gets the maximum network bandwidth to be used by the client.

Default value is 800Mbps.

This value influences the quality and the number of interactive frames sent to the client (see ConnectionSettings::setFrameEncodingPolicy). The higher the value, the better the quality and the number of interactive frames.

Returns:
the network bandwidth in bits per second

ServiceListener::onConnectedClient
void RemoteViz::Rendering::ClientSettings::setBandwidth ( unsigned int  val  ) 

Sets the network bandwidth to be used by the client.

Default value is 800Mbps.

This value is not a hard limit, but it influences the image quality and the number of interactive frames (frames per second) sent to the client. The policy can be set for each connection (see ConnectionSettings::setFrameEncodingPolicy). The higher the value, the better the image quality and the number of interactive frames. See discussion in the class description.

If the client has more than one connection, the bandwidth allowed for each connection is this value divided by the number of connections.

Parameters:
val : network bandwidth in bits per second

ServiceListener::onConnectedClient
