To reduce the required number of connections, communication between two servers is managed through a single site handler. The site handler can pre-read and keep track of data packets for each user process before the receiving process is ready to accept them.

The default value for remote server pre-read packets is appropriate for most servers. Increasing the value uses more memory; decreasing the value can slow network traffic between servers.
