Back-pressure means a fast producer and slow consumer.

The issue of back-pressure comes when your consumer is not capable of processing income data in the same rate.

A streaming software will be implemented in this case in order to:

  • play the role of buffers
  • and having a sort of checkpoint or offset mechanism in order to be able to restart the process if needed.

The longer a consumer stay offline the higher will be the back-pressure.
