Table of Contents


Install

Run the following command in your Node-RED user directory - typically ~/.node-red:

npm install node-red-contrib-throttle

Usage

A simple node to throttle down passed through message amount. Just insert the throttle node in between two others, and the passed through message amount can be limited by different parameters. Every other messages will be dropped.

By Time

Limits the passed through messages by a given amount of time.
For example: setting the node to 10 seconds means, that only one message in ten seconds will be forwarded.

By Count

Limits the passed through messages by a given count.
For example: setting the node to a count of 5 means, that only every fifth message will be forwarded.

By Block Size

Limits the passed through messages by a given block size. The counter will be reset when a message with msg.reset was received.
For example: setting the node to a block size of 5 means, that only the first five messages will be forwarded.

By Reset

Will only pass through a single message, when a message with msg.reset was received before.
