Overview

RpmTimer (RequestPerMinute Timer) is a tool for limiting your processing speed to the requested number of items (e.g. requests) per minut.

It is designed to work with any rate-limited API.

Getting Started

First of all you have to add this dependency to your Cargo.toml:

[dev-dependencies]
rpm-timer = "0.0.3"

Next include rpm_timer crate in your lib.rs or main.rs file:

extern crate rpm_timer;

Finally, use RpmTimer in the mods where you are going to limit your processing speed:

use rpm_timer::RpmTimer;

Examples

In order to avoid unnecessary memory alocations, run function has two version.

  1. run_slices accepts slice and pass sub-slices to the processing function:
extern crate rpm_timer;

use rpm_timer::RpmTimer;

fn send_slice(requests: Vec<String>) {
    RpmTimer::default()
        .rpm_limit(100.0)
        .run_slice(&requests, send_http_requests);
}

fn send_http_requests(requests: &[&String]) {
    // process all requests here
}
  1. run_iter accepts any iterator, collects items and pass every portion in Vec to the processing function:processing
extern crate rpm_timer;

use rpm_timer::RpmTimer;

fn send_slice(reader: BufReader) {
    let lines = reader.lines();

    RpmTimer::default()
        .rpm_limit(100.0)
        .run_iter(lines, send_http_requests);
}

fn send_http_requests(requests: Vec<Result<String, io::Error>>) {
    // process all requests here
}

Please check examples directory for more detailed, working examples.

Description

RpmTimer works in tick intervals. You can adjust tick length with tick method. Every tick it checks if there are any free worker threads (the number of threads can be adjusted with max_threads) and how many items should be processed in order to achieve requested speed. If any items should be processed, RpmTimer collects them to the either slice (in non-allocating version) or Vec (in allocating version) and fires processing function in the parallel.

Visualization:

Assume 2 worker threads and 500 ms tick time. Also, imagine a lag (e.g. cpu busy with other processes) between 2nd and 3rd second:

60 RPM = 1 RPS = 1 request every 1 second

Time                     0   0.5   1   1.5   2   2.5   3   3.5
Main Thread:             |....X....X....X....X.........X....X..
Number of items 'ready'  1   0.5   1   0.5   1         2   0.5
Worker #1                1**********************.......2******.
Worker #2                ..........1**************.............
                                             ^         ^
                                             |         |- 2 items sent to the thread
                                             |- an item is ready but no worker threads available

30 RPM = 0.5 RPS = 1 request every 2 seconds

Time                     0   0.5   1   1.5   2   2.5   3   3.5
Main Thread:             |....X....X....X..............X....X..
Number of items 'ready'  1  0.25  0.5  0.75  1  0.25  0.5  0.75
Worker #1                1***********..........................
Worker #2                ....................1************.....

Legend:

  • . - sleeping
  • X - main thread's tick
  • * - busy with # requests
