I'm working with a system in which a program is failing because it sometimes tries to write more data to a stream socket than will fit. It reports that it can't write to the socket because it's out of buffer space, then dies ungracefully.

What's the best solution to this problem?

Have the code wait a few milliseconds to tens of milliseconds and retry the write()? Or switch to non-blocking mode and pay attention to the return value from write, and retry as needed if and when write () doesn't actually send out all of the bytes your request wanted it to...
