There is flow control based on various Erlang processes (including queues, protocol reader
and consumers) not keeping up with the messages that are being sent to them. This
flow control is temporary, while resource-based can lead to publishers being blocked
for a longer time (until resource alarms clear).

Does this answer your question?
