In this video, learn some of the problems asynchronous patterns attempt to solve.
- [Instructor] We briefly touched on some of the benefits … of this communication style, … but I want to go into a little more depth … to the power of these architectural design decisions … to help you be better prepared to know when … and why you would use such a communication style … in your microservices system. … In TCP/IP communications on a network, … and it used to be a real issue with routing protocols, … it was possible to bring a network to its knees … through what is called a broadcast storm. … Each node was broadcasting its routing table … and the network itself would become gridlocked. … A similar pattern can emerge … in a microservices architecture. … As more and more services enter the system … or even more prevalent, the container orchestrator, … the chattiness of communications … can lead to congestion in the network. … TCP is a chatty protocol to begin with … and then you add to it the many calls needed … to make one single operation work … and you start to see congestion on a network. …
