Flow Control and Backpressure

In previous chapters, we have discussed how Reactor offers effective controls to check the production rate. This mechanism is often called backpressure. However, there are instances where backpressure is not an efficient strategy. In such cases, Reactor offers a number of flow control optimizations that can be used without backpressure.

In this chapter, we will cover the following topics regarding flow control and backpressure:

  • GroupBy
  • Buffer
  • Window
  • Sample
  • Backpressure
