Anyone watching the current (streaming?) video series of the 2022 EDA Summit is likely to once again be shocked by the number of EDA thought leaders making interminable references to event streaming. Why shocked? Because events are NEVER “streamed,” and anyone claiming to understand EDA probably ought to understand that fairly fundamental point.

The Oxford Dictionary defines “streaming” as “a method of transmitting or receiving data (especially video and audio material) … as a steady, continuous flow, allowing playback to start while the rest of the data is still being received.” Events, you are probably aware, are never split across separate payloads. Indeed, on major platforms such as AWS where event payloads are limited to a maximum of 256 KB, even then I have never seen an individual event payload that came close to exceeding this limit.
