	<title>Overview</title>
	<para>
		The module executes route blocks on a timer base. It can create new
		timer processes and execute many route blocks on same timer.
	</para>
	<para>
		A static faked SIP message is given as parameter to called functions,
		so all functions available for REQUEST_ROUTE can be used.

	<title>Parameters</title>
	<section>
		<title><varname>timer</varname> (str)</title>
		<para>
		The definition of a timer. The value of the parameter must have the
		following format:
		</para>
		<itemizedlist>
		<listitem>
		<para>
		"name=_string_;mode=_number_;interval=_number_"
		</para>
		</listitem>
		</itemizedlist>
		<para>
			The parameter can be set multiple times to get more timers in
			same configuration file.
		</para>
		<itemizedlist>
		<listitem>
		<para>
			<emphasis>name</emphasis> - name of the timer.
		</para>
		</listitem>
		<listitem>
		<para>
			<emphasis>mode</emphasis> - if set to 0, the timer will use the main
			(shared) timer. Any number > 0 will create the specified amount of
			new timer processes (which will only be handling this timer).
		</para>
		</listitem>
		<listitem>
		<para>
			<emphasis>interval</emphasis> - timer interval in seconds or
			micro-seconds (the value must be ended in 'u'). For micro-seconds
			intervals, mode is set always to 1.
		</para>
		</listitem>
		</itemizedlist>
		<para>
		<emphasis>
			Default value is NULL.
		</emphasis>
		</para>
		<example>
		<title>Set <varname>timer</varname> parameter</title>
		<programlisting format="linespecific">
...
# time interval set to 10 seconds
modparam("rtimer", "timer", "name=ta;interval=10;mode=1;")
# time interval set to 100 mili-seconds
modparam("rtimer", "timer", "name=ta;interval=100000u;mode=1;")
...
</programlisting>

	<section>
		<title><varname>exec</varname> (str)</title>
		<para>
		Specify route to be executed on timer. The value of the parameter
		must have the following format:
		</para>
		<itemizedlist>
		<listitem>
		<para>
		"timer=_string_;route=_number_"
		</para>
		</listitem>
		</itemizedlist>
		<para>
			The parameter can be set multiple times to get more routes
			executed on same timer.
		</para>
		<itemizedlist>
		<listitem>
		<para>
			<emphasis>timer</emphasis> - name of the timer.
		</para>
		</listitem>
		<listitem>
		<para>
		<emphasis>route</emphasis> - the name of the route block to be executed,
		or the name of the function from kemi script. The kemi function
		receives a string parameter with the value being the name of the
		module.
		</para>
		</listitem>
		</itemizedlist>
		<para>
		<emphasis>
			Default value is NULL.
		</emphasis>
		</para>

		<title>Set <varname>exec</varname> parameter</title>
		<programlisting format="linespecific">
...
modparam("rtimer", "timer", "name=ta;interval=10;mode=1;")
modparam("rtimer", "exec", "timer=ta;route=ONTIMER")
