> By default, auto-read flag is set to true in Netty. This means Netty proactively read
requests as they become available to a worker. However, this behavior sometime causes the
off-heap memory to increase continuously. This happens specifically in presence of a spike
in the amount of received requests. In that situation, the processing/handling rate of incoming
requests may be less than the request receipt rate leading to high-memory kill (CGroup kill
or OOM). With auto-read flag set to false, we read and process requests one by one and (hopefully/presumably)
letting the transport layer do the flow control (i.e. dropping packets or reducing congestion
window of TCP).
