Is it better to pack as much information into a single state update packet as possible, or should I send a separate packet for each update?
Currently, I'm sending a single packet per object every 64 milliseconds, and am implementing a method similar to the one in this article: https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Source_Multiplayer_Networking.
Each packet is 88 bytes. Is it more efficient to pack as many updates into a single packet as possible? And if so, what size should the packet be? I would like this to scale to a large number of players and a large number of physics objects, but looking at my task manager, my server is already using about 1/4 mb/s just for about 10 objects and a single client.
Edit: Not sure why the last paragraph is bold.
