I need to publish some data to the service from the C# web application. The data itself is collected when user uses the application (a kind of usage statistics). I don't want to send data to the service during each user's request, I would rather collect the data in the app and send then all the data in a single request in a separate thread, that does not serve the users requests (I mean user does not have to wait for the request to be processed by the service). For this purpose I need a kind of JS's
setInterval analog - the launch of the function each X seconds to flush all collected data to the service.
I found out that
Timer class provides somewhat similar (
Elapsed event). However, this allows to run the method only once, but that's not a big issue. The main difficulty with it is that it requires the signature
void MethodName(object e, ElapsedEventArgs args)
while I would like to launch the async method, that will call the web-service (input parameters are not important):
async Task MethodName(object e, ElapsedEventArgs args)
Could anyone advise how to solve the described task? Any tips appreciated.
