Hi all.

I've searched the documentations for information about client
polling but I have not found the answer I'm looking for.

What does the client actually do when it "polls" the server for
information? How big is the data being asked, what method of
communication(UDP?), and what effort(cpu, memory) on the server
side when a client polls it?

I've seen performance documentation but the informations appear
to be local only to the system.

Any suggestions or ideas on the above questions is much
