How to protect your application from overloading? Throttler EIP using Apache Camel.

Highly resilient applications must be able to cope with increases in request volume. To achieve this, load balancers are typically used to protect applications from being overwhelmed, but it is also important to have application-level controls.

One way to prevent overloading a specific endpoint or violating an SLA with an external service is by implementing a throttler.

The throttler regulates the speed or volume of messages sent to the endpoint, preventing it from becoming overwhelmed.

In the video, I demonstrate how to construct an endpoint that utilizes a throttler to manage the incoming flow of messages to your application.
