[erlang-questions] How would you implement TTL for ETS based cache?
Thu Mar 14 15:29:33 CET 2013
I have been experimenting with similar approach. The main idea was to keep a two ETS based indexes. The first one it key-value map, second is expire-key map. Second index allows you to handle eviction. You have a process that evict a items when they are expired.
I did a quick proto but never had opportunity to evolve it further.
It would be excellent to get community comments on it.
