Jump to user comments
In mainstream folklore it is observed that trying to drink
from a firehose can be a good way to rip your lips off. On
computer networks, the absence or failure of flow control
mechanisms can lead to situations in which the sending system
sprays a massive flood of packets at an unfortunate receiving
system, more than it can handle.
