Data Processing - Batch in code.
Buffers are containers of a (fixed|variable with max) amount of data or operations.
Without buffer, each read or write request is handled directly by the underlying layer (OS, Database, …) . This can make a program much less efficient, since each such request often triggers other operations that may be relatively expensive.. For instance, for an OS layer
- disk access,
- network activity,
- or some other operation

Flushing the buffer means that you write data to an entity (mostly a file).
