This crate provides timers for use with tokio that rely on OS mechanisms for timer management
rather than a separate timing mechanism like
tokio-timer. This comes at somewhat increased
overhead if you have many timers, but allows the timers to have any granularity supported by
your operating system where
tokio-timer can only support timers with a granularity of 1ms.
In particular, the system timers usually support whatever granularity the underlying hardware
supports (see "High-resolution timers" in
time(7)), which on my laptop is 1ns!
Realistically, you won't be able to make your timers higher resolution than how long system
calls on your system take, which is usually on the order of hundreds of nanoseconds.
A future that completes a specified amount of time from its creation.
A stream that yields once every time a fixed amount of time elapses.
