I am using python requests library to stream the data from a streaming API.
response = requests.get('http://server/stream-forever', stream=True) for chunk in response.iter_content(chunk_size=1024): print len(chunk) # prints 1905, 1850, 1909
I have specified the chunk size as 1024. Printing the length of the chunk read gives the chunk size greater than 1024 like 1905, 1850, 1909 and so on.
Am I missing something here?
(…)The chunk size is the number of bytes it should read into memory. This
is not necessarily the length of each item returned as decoding can
