Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the reliable session has flow control enabled; otherwise, false. The default is true.

Flow control is a mechanism that reliable sessions implement to ensure that senders do not send more messages than a receiver can handle. Receivers have a buffer of messages that is used to accommodate message bursts and out-of-order messages. Receivers advertise to senders the amount of space that remains in this buffer in each of their acknowledgements. Senders can use this information to stop sending new messages whenever the receiver has no buffer space left.
