Re: [mosquitto-dev] Throttling for outgoing messages from bridge

Hi Roger,
 Can I get a response to the below query?

Hi Roger ,
 Yes , max_inflight_messages property value is not getting honored when connection drops and comes back. We are using MQTTV5 protocol connecting to the Hive MQ broker and expecting to control the number of concurrent messages which are getting published (Qos 2) once connection is back online.
For instance , if we have 100 messages which are yet to be published to the bridge broker. It’s needs to first send  20 at once and then process the next set if the max_inflight_messages is set to 20 once connection resumes.
Let me know if this could be possible in future.

We see the "max_inflight_messages " property is working for the clients connecting to the mosquitto only. Is there any plans to bring in a feature to support throttling for the outgoing messages from the Bridge?
