I’ve been testing the streaming API and have a few queries.
- Using the following endpoint: stream.companieshouse.gov.uk/companies , is it possible to simply subscribe to updates for specific companies rather than receiving all updates to the CoHo database?
- If the above is not possible, what is the estimated bandwidth usage for just the companies endpoint per month/quarter/year?
- Nothing is mentioned in the documentation about compressing output, nevertheless, I supplied the following header: *Accept-Encoding: br;q=1.0, gzip;q=0.8, ;q=0.1 however I still received a plain chunked text response. What headers do we need to apply to ensure compressed output from the streaming endpoints if at all supported?
If there is no functionality to filter the updates we get from the streaming endpoints, surely compression should be implemented to reduce on bandwidth waste.
