configure upm timer after

configure upm timer timer-name after time-in-secs {every seconds}


Creates and names a UPM timer that is activated after the specified time in seconds.

Syntax Description

timer-name Specifies the name of the UPM timer to be created.
time-in-secs Configures the interval after which the UPM timer is activated.
seconds Configures the UPM timer to be activated after every instance of the specified interval.



Usage Guidelines

Use this command to configure a timer that activates after the specified time. This is useful for deployment in CLI scripts, because you do not know what the current time will be when the script executes.

When a switch configuration is saved or restored, the UPM timers are activated only at the predetermined timings that were originally configured with the start time.

The periodic timer configured with the every keyword and the one-time timer configured with only the after keyword have a maximum range of one year in seconds (31,622,400 seconds).


The following example configures the UPM timer “A” to be activated every 10 seconds, after an interval of 20 seconds:

configure upm  timer "timerA" after 20 every 10
