Socket.io why very slow?


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to read data from the file as follows and send data to the client.

I can send a 20MB file in 30 seconds. But I have to send 20MB per second.

Am I doing something wrong?


var File = require('File')
var FileReader = require('filereader'), fileReader = new FileReader();
fileReader.setNodeChunkedEncoding(true || false);
fileReader.readAsArrayBuffer(new File('../Test.txt'));

fileReader.addEventListener('load', function (ev) {
  JsonData = JSON.stringify(new Int16Array(ev.target.result););

var app = require('express')();
var http = require('http').createServer(app);
var io = require('socket.io')(http);

io.on('connection', function(socket){
    console.log('a user connected');
    console.log("DateTime : " + getDateTime()); 
    socket.on("update", function(data){
      console.log("DateTime : " + getDateTime());


  socket.on('message', function(msg){
    console.log('message: ' + msg);

  socket.on('disconnect', function(){
    console.log('user disconnected');

http.listen(9099, function(){
  console.log('listening on *:9099');



var socket = io("http://localhost:9099");
socket.on('message', function(message) {
   var JsonData = JSON.parse(message);
   socket.emit("update", { data:"getData"});


Socket.io version : 2.2.0
Filereader version: 0.10.3
NodeJS version: 10.16.3
