Keywords:  stream, scxbus, metacode, ebbr, ipds
(DS) A bundle of 64 time slots transmitted across a single line. The 16 data lines of the SCbus and the SCxbus are designated DS0 through DS15 and each carries one data stream.
Collections of data files that have a common source and structure are called data streams A data stream name consists of a first part with abbreviations for the site, data source, and facility, a period, and a second part indicating the data level. A data stream describes a type of file from a particular location. A data stream is actually broken up into daily pieces (or rarely, longer-period pieces). The pieces are files with the same basic name structure but differing in time.

An undifferentiated, byte-by-byte flow of data. A data stream can be distinguished in practice from a block transfer, although the moving of blocks could itself be considered a “stream” (of coarser granularity).
a continuous sequence of attribute-value tuples that all conform to some pre-defined schema (sequence of typed attributes)
a logical group of one or more event channels, one or more suppliers, a single consumer, intermediate query driven computation called quoblets, and a relational schema
a massive unbounded sequence of data elements continuously generated at a rapid rate
The flow of individual data bits being transmitted through a communications channel to accomplish the transfer of information.
All the data transmitted through a particular communication line for a particular program, operation or scheduled transmission.
All data transmitted through a communications line in a single read or write operation.
a logical link between one stage and another that provides for the transfer of messages
