Can I broadcast to all WebSocket clients


I'm assuming this isn't possible, but wanted to ask in case it is. If I want to provide a status information web page, I want to use WebSockets to push the data from the server to the browser. But my concerns are the effect a large number of browsers will have on the server. Can I broadcast to all clients rather than send discrete messages to each client?


Answers:


WebSockets uses TCP, which is point to point, and provides no broadcast support.
