Much like how an electrical circuit breaker prevents an overload by stopping the flow of electricity when excessive current is detected, the Circuit Breaker pattern in software engineering stops the flow of requests to a service when the number of failures exceeds a predefined threshold. This ensures that a failing service doesn’t continue receiving traffic until it recovers, preventing further strain and potential cascading failures.
