time_sleep_until

(PHP 5 >= 5.1.0)

time_sleep_until Paralisa o script até um tempo especificado

Descrição

bool time_sleep_until ( float $timestamp )

Paralisa o script até o especificado timestamp.

Parâmetros

timestamp

O timestamp quando o script deve voltar.

Valor Retornado

Retorna TRUE em caso de sucesso ou FALSE em caso de falha.

Erros

Se o especificado timestamp é do passado, esta função irá gerar um E_WARNING.

Exemplos

Exemplo #1 Um exemplo da time_sleep_until()

<?php

//returns false and generates a warning
var_dump(time_sleep_until(time()-1));

// may only work on faster computers, will sleep up to 0.2 seconds
var_dump(time_sleep_until(time()+0.2));

?>

Notas

Nota: Todos sinais serão enviados depois do script voltar.

Nota: esta função não é implementada na plataforma Windows

At least on my Windows machine, the time_sleep_until function appears to calculate the number of microseconds between now and the sleep-until timestamp, and it appears to use unsigned 32-bit math in this calculation.  This roundoff leads to a maximum sleep time of just under 4295 seconds (1 hour, 11 minutes, 35 seconds).  To get longer sleep times, while still using time_sleep_until to minimize processor overhead, the following loop may be some help to you:

<?php

$sleepuntil
= strtotime("tuesday 3pm");

while (
time() < $sleepuntil)
  
time_sleep_until($sleepuntil);

// proceed with dated processing

?>

Of course, one could use something like "cron" instead, to avoid the script doing the extended sleep.  Also note that time_nanosleep appears to do similar math, but it is somewhat more intuitive that the seconds parameter has an upper limit on what it can be.  Still, both functions might report a warning when waking up prematurely due to roundoff.

Not realising that this function existed, I wrote something similar, but it has the additional facility to specify a minimum pause even if the target time has already been reached, for instance in a processor-intensive loop.

It's in seconds rather than microseconds (it's intended for heavy-duty CLI scripts), but that could easily be changed by using microtime(true) and usleep if greater granularity was required.

<?php
   
/**
     * Pause processing until the specified time, to avoid hammering a DB or service
     *
     * @param int $target_time Timestamp
     * @param int $min_sleep Always sleep for a minimum number of seconds,
     *    even if the target timestamp has already passed.
     *     Default 0, meaning only sleep until the target timestamp is reached.
     *
     * @example <code>
         while ( ! $finished )
         {
             $minimum_start_of_next_loop = time() + $min_secs_per_loop;
            
             # DO STUFF THAT MAY OR MAY NOT TAKE VERY LONG
            
             sleep_until( $minimum_start_of_next_loop, $min_pause_between_loops );
         }
     </code>
     */
   
function sleep_until($target_time, $min_sleep = 0)
    {
       
$time_now = time();
       
       
$time_to_target = $target_time - $time_now;
       
       
// If we've already reached the target time, that's fine
       
if ( $time_to_target <= $min_sleep )
        {
           
// If required, sleep for a bit anyway
           
sleep( $min_sleep );
        }
        else
        {
           
// Sleep for the number of seconds until the target time
           
sleep( $time_to_target );
        }
    }
?>

better implementation
<?php
if (!function_exists('time_sleep_until')) {
   function
time_sleep_until($future) {
       if (
$future < time()) {
          
trigger_error("Time in past", E_USER_WARNING);
           return
false;
       }

      
usleep(($future - microtime(1))*1000000);
       return
true;
   }
}
