Take time in the new year, for a timed trigger ITNM discovery!

With IBM Tivoli Network Manager it's possible to automate the discovery frequency and time.
This is commonly referred to as 'ActOnTimedTrigger' and is documented here
The documentation handles the use of parameters very well, but here are some items that are good to know.
The ActOnTimedTrigger exists in the $PRE
The default copy exists in $PRE
Note the bottom of the documentation
It is not possible to combine any of the configuration options with the m_Interval or m_IntervalSeconds options, which take precedence over any other attribute.
Look at this technote, don't combine m_TimeOfDay twice
When using m_Interval in hours, note that a new discovery starts after the start of the previous discovery not the end of a previous discovery.
In other words, if a discovery takes 4 hours, and the interval is 5 hours, the next discovery starts one hour after the completion of the first discovery
Finally, configuration file changes will be picked up in the ActOnTimedTrigger discovery. Before 3.9 this was not the case.
