Description

Review excessive stream starve situations involving host to kernel stream dataflow.

Explanation

A stream starve situation indicates the consumer is ready to accept the data but the producer is not sending enough data to keep the consumer busy. This could be a potential issue in how the host code is architected.

Recommendation

Review your host application to ensure the data is being fed to the streaming kernel to make it busy as much as possible.
