Hi All,

I am trying my hand with Websockets to get data out from a particular URI.
From what I understand is that there are no Web API endpoints, just a single URI with various forms of JSON data coming through from the server side.
I was wondering if there is a simpler way of getting data from that endpoint beyond what appears to be raw websocket connections in my console application.
The data collected will be logged for processing later.

What I have tried:

The examples I have seen so far and am now testing is on the low level socket.

clientWebSocket = new ClientWebSocket();
await clientWebSocket.ConnectAsync(new Uri(serverSetting.KSimNetAPIServerUrl), stoppingToken);

                while (!stoppingToken.IsCancellationRequested)
                    var buffer = new ArraySegment<byte>(new byte[2048]);
                    WebSocketReceiveResult result;
                    String json;

                    using (System.IO.MemoryStream ms = new System.IO.MemoryStream())
                            result = await clientWebSocket.ReceiveAsync(buffer, stoppingToken);
                            ms.Write(buffer.Array, buffer.Offset, result.Count);
                        } while (!result.EndOfMessage);

                        if (result.MessageType == WebSocketMessageType.Close)

                        ms.Seek(0, System.IO.SeekOrigin.Begin);

                        json = Encoding.UTF8.GetString(ms.ToArray());
                        _logger.LogInformation("Received: {0}", json);
                    // TODO: Processing of the JSON data

Any advice is appreciated.
