The Intercept architecture is not designed for what you are attempting.  Use
the OnWork... events instead.  You can keep track of how many bytes have
been sent in between each event.

Don't use intercepts for that.  Intercepts are designed for altering the
data itself, and the flow of the data.  They are not meant for reporting
details about the speed of the data.

There is no way around that.  The Intercept architecture is specifically
designed to operate on entire buffers.  An Intercept cannot receive a given
buffer and flush it to the connection in smaller pieces.
