# Timer interval specifications

You can specify timer values in several incremental ranges.

The values in each range are selected by entering a hexadecimal value in the IRM_TIMER field in the IRM of the input message from the client. The hexadecimal values that can be specified and the time intervals that they represent are:

- Increments of one one-hundredth of a second are represented by values of X'01' to X'19', as shown in Table 1.
- Increments of five one-hundredths of a second are represented by values of X'1A' to X'27', as shown in Table 2.
- Increments of one second are represented by values of X'28' to X'63', as shown in Table 3.
- Increments of one minute are represented by values of X'63' to X'9E', as shown in Table 4.
- Default timer values, the no-timer option, and the indefinite wait option, specified by X'00', X'E9', and X'FF' respectively, are shown in Table 5.

The following table lists the IRM_TIMER values and their corresponding time in increments of one one-hundredth of a second.

The following table lists additional options that you can specify in the IRM_TIMER field and the value you use to specify them.

Timer option | Value |
---|---|

Use default values. For RESUME TPIPE calls and associated ACK messages, the default is .25 seconds. For all other SENDs, the default is the configuration file TIMEOUT value. | X'00' |

Do not wait. | X'E9' C'Z' |

Wait indefinitely. This setting is intended to support the auto option of the asynchronous output function. | X'FF' |
