Logger Rate Limiter

Design a logger system that receives a stream of messages along with their timestamps. Each unique message should only be printed at most every 10 seconds (i.e. a message printed at timestamp t will prevent other identical messages from being printed until timestamp t + 10).

All messages will come in chronological order. Several messages may arrive at the same timestamp.

Implement the Logger class:

1. Logger() Initializes the logger object.
2. bool shouldPrintMessage(int timestamp, string message) Returns true if the message should be printed in the given timestamp, otherwise returns false.

var Logger = function() { = new Map();

Logger.prototype.shouldPrintMessage = function(timestamp, message) {
       const prevTime =;
       if(timestamp < prevTime + 10) return false;
   }, timestamp);
   return true;
