can you explain the "fragement it over multiple reactor itertations" please?

see if this thread is helpful:


I'm using this technique which boils down to reactor.callLater(0, recursive_function, args)

I also tried reactor.iterate()

- although this prevented blocking for some reason it had some undesirable side effects with my app.
