Closely related to Throughput, Throttle is a technique a server will use to prevent your application from exceeding its allowed throughput. By way of example, if your account is allowed to send at 10 msg/sec, and you try and submit at 20 msg/sec, then the receiving server will throttle your application send rate by either delaying acknowledgement or responding with throttle errors to slow your application down back down to 10 msg/sec.
