If you send 2000 packets from one machine to another wouldn't that be 
construed as a denial of service attack?
Surely you can compress the information into fewer packets, say by using a 
single OSC message to send an array of values.
Unless you mean 2000 machines are sending single packets to one machine, in 
which case the packets will all be separate, there's no problem apart from 
overloading the cpu for a few seconds.
