setTimeout(..., 0)の本当の挙動を知っていますか?

ChromiumのGoogle Groupsを眺めていたらsetTimeout()の実装で面白いものをみつけた.

Intent to Ship: Remove clamping of setTimeout(..., 0)


Calls to setTimeout(..., 0) were previously clamped to a 1 ms timeout for historical reason: https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=402694, This is very old, http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/17156 appeared to add it (10/20/06).

This is actually a bug since there's no 1ms clamp in the spec, and which will cause scheduling error, e.g.

setTimeout(()=> console.log('1ms timeout'), 1);

setTimeout(()=> console.log('0ms timeout'), 0);


Chrome 87: 1ms timeout, 0ms timeout

Moreover, 1ms clamp may bring performance penalty.

setTimeout(..., 0)歴史的理由によって,1msのタイムアウトを含んでいるという.このポストではChromeに変更が加えられ,1msのタイムアウトを取り除く実装になったことがアナウンスされている.

歴史的な理由は,setTimeout(..., 0)によるCPUの過剰な使用を避けるためだという.



Honor tiny timer intervals for JS timeouts as they are nested until a cutoff point is reached.

At that point clamp to 10ms to prevent excessive CPU usage.

出典) http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/17156/webkit


// Use a minimum interval of 10 ms to match other browsers.
double interval = t <= 10 ? 0.010 : t * 0.001;


// Use a minimum interval of 10 ms to match other browsers, but only once we've
// nested enough to notice that we're repeating.
double interval = max(0.001, t * 0.001);
if (interval < cMinimumTimerInterval && nestLevel >= cMaxTimerNestingLevel)
    interval = cMinimumTimerInterval;


Slackのtimesでつぶやいたら@marin_a__さんからsetInterval() のネストは4msかかると教えてもらった.

Timers can be nested; after five such nested timers, however, the interval is forced to be at least four milliseconds.
