time-cache: Cache current time and formatted time text
Suppose you have an IO action which runs very frequently, and one of the
things it does is getting the current
UTCTime, possibly also formatting it
into a String or Text. The action cares about the current minute, and doesn't
care about seconds or milliseconds at all. Instead of reading and formatting
the time many times, using this library you can keep a cache which updates
every minute (or other interval) and allows your application to scale without
time reading and formatting ever becoming a bottleneck.
There are 2 modules provided. I suggest you start with the monadic one, especially for simple usage, and switch to the other one if you need some custom solution.
The Data.Time.Cache module allows you to create a time caching action which returns time and a formatted time string. But instead of directly reading the time and running a formatter, it takes the values from a cache it periodically updates.
The Control.Monad.Trans.Time module provides a convenient monadic wrapper for the time cache.
If you need the time cache in multiple threads, you can create the time getter once and then pass to all the threads to share.
