So I have multiple devices that send requests every 3 seconds to a central server. This data is saved in
table A. If a device stops sending data in lets say 60 seconds, I need to log this in
One way I thought of doing this is using cron jobs that loop through rows in
table A and compare the updated-time field with the current time, and if it is less than 60 seconds log the event in
table B. However, this seems like it could be super resource inefficient.
The other way I thought of is writing some logic in the controller. I imagine it as a function with a timeout that gets reset once another request from the same device comes in (Strapi uses
async functions, so I assume it would return a response and the timeout function would not be blocking anything ). However, how could I then reset the timer?
Is there a better way to do this?
