# 359. Logger Rate Limiter

## Description

Design a logger system that receives a stream of messages along with their timestamps. Each unique message should only be printed at most every 10 seconds (i.e. a message printed at timestamp t will prevent other identical messages from being printed until timestamp t + 10).

All messages will come in chronological order. Several messages may arrive at the same timestamp.

Implement the Logger class:

• Logger() Initializes the logger object.
• bool shouldPrintMessage(int timestamp, string message) Returns true if the message should be printed in the given timestamp, otherwise returns false.

Example 1:

Input
["Logger", "shouldPrintMessage", "shouldPrintMessage", "shouldPrintMessage", "shouldPrintMessage", "shouldPrintMessage", "shouldPrintMessage"]
[[], [1, "foo"], [2, "bar"], [3, "foo"], [8, "bar"], [10, "foo"], [11, "foo"]]
Output
[null, true, true, false, false, false, true]

Explanation
Logger logger = new Logger();
logger.shouldPrintMessage(1, "foo");  // return true, next allowed timestamp for "foo" is 1 + 10 = 11
logger.shouldPrintMessage(2, "bar");  // return true, next allowed timestamp for "bar" is 2 + 10 = 12
logger.shouldPrintMessage(3, "foo");  // 3 < 11, return false
logger.shouldPrintMessage(8, "bar");  // 8 < 12, return false
logger.shouldPrintMessage(10, "foo"); // 10 < 11, return false
logger.shouldPrintMessage(11, "foo"); // 11 >= 11, return true, next allowed timestamp for "foo" is 11 + 10 = 21


Constraints:

• 0 <= timestamp <= 109
• Every timestamp will be passed in non-decreasing order (chronological order).
• 1 <= message.length <= 30
• At most 104 calls will be made to shouldPrintMessage.

## Solutions

private Map<String, Integer> limiter;

/** Initialize your data structure here. */

limiter = new HashMap<>();

false. If this method returns false, the message will not be printed. The timestamp is in
seconds granularity.
*/
public boolean shouldPrintMessage(int timestamp, String message) {
int t = limiter.getOrDefault(message, 0);
if (t > timestamp) {
return false;
}
limiter.put(message, timestamp + 10);
return true;
}
}
