  1. Err, buffer size of 10 is not good enough.

    If you’re doing video encoding and you get a lot of uploads, you could get up to a backlog of 10 very fast. It’ll take a few minutes to start up a new EC2 node, and in the meantime you’ll lose data?

    Unless I’m missing something or misunderstanding what they mean by buffer?

    The buffer in this case means the number of packets you can pull down in a single call.
