timer_agent — Service plugin for deferred command execution with timer(8gx)
timer_agent connects to a remote timer(8gx) daemon and locally installs two service functions, “add_timer” and “cancel_timer”, which can be used to set up and rescind, respectively, jobs for later execution.
In practice, this is used by exchange_emsmdb(4gx) and zcore(8gx) to implement delayed sending of messages.
Configuration file directives¶
- Number of connections to keep active.Default: 8
- The hostname/IP address for contacting the timer daemon.Default: ::1
- The TCP port number for contacting the timer daemon.Default: 6666
