API Reference

Throttle(throttled_object, seconds, times=1, aio=False, loop=None)

Create a instance of Throttle to throttle invocations to all methods of throttled_object, according to frequence specified.

  • throttled_object: The object to be throttled.
  • seconds: Specify throttling interval in seconds.
  • times: Specify how many invocations can be made in given interval.
  • aio: Whether use asyncio.sleep() instead of time.sleep().
  • aio: The EventLoop if using asyncio. By default it is asyncio.get_event_loop().
  • delay: Custom delay function. For synchronized, it is def delay(seconds); for asynchronized, it is async def delay(seconds).
