Known issue: Opening many event streams stalls the browser

Due to some recent cloud infrastructure changes, opening many Particle event streams from a browser can cause the browser to stall. Most browsers will only make 6 connections to the same host ( in this case) so having many event streams in 1 tab or having multiple tabs with 1 event stream open in each will make new connections to stall indefinitely until other tabs are closed.

The Particle engineering team is working on an additional infrastructure change to allow more simultaneous event stream connections again.

Thanks for your patience as we develop and roll out this change.


Could this same issue impact the ability to open many particle event streams using the javascript library?

Yes, it was affecting opening event stream with the Javascript library in the browser, but not in Node.

This is now resolved.
