       periodic - Make or configure a periodic handler for the BIG-IP(r) system.

       sys icall handler

       Modify the periodic component within the sys icall handler module using the syntax shown in the following sections.

	create periodic [name]
	modify periodic [name]
	  arguments {
	     name [string]
	     value [string]
	  description [string]
	  first-occurrence [date/time]
	  interval [integer]
	  last-occurrence [date/time]
	  script [script name]
	  status [active | inactive]

	mv periodic [ [ [source-name] [destination-name] ]    |
		      [ [name] to-folder [folder-name] ]      |
		      [ [] to-folder [folder-name] ] ]

	list periodic
	list periodic [ [ [name] | [glob] | [regex] ] ... ]
	show periodic
	show periodic [ [ [name] | [glob] | [regex] ] ... ]

	delete periodic [name]

       You can create a periodic handler to run scripts automatically based on clock time.

       create periodic my_handler1 script script1 first-occurrence now+1h interval 45 arguments { { name user value j.han } { name
       role value manager } }

       Create a new periodic handler that will execute script1 every 45 seconds. The handler will wait one hour before beginning,
       but continue to execute indefinitely. Each 45 seconds, when the script executes, the provided arguments will be passed into
       the script as EVENT::context() data.

       mv periodic /Common/my_periodic to-folder /Common/my_folder

       Moves a periodic icall handler named my_periodic to a folder named my_folder, where my_folder has already been created and
       exists within /Common.

	    Specifies a set of name/value pairs that will be passed to the script at the start of each execution on each interval.

	    The use of arguments is optional and may be changed at any time.

	    A user defined description of the item.

	    A specific date and time for this handler to begin executing. If not specified, the current date and time of creation
	    will be used.

	    The number of seconds between each time this handler should execute.

	    A specific date and time for this handler to stop executing. If not specified, the script will run indefinitely.

	    The iCall Tcl script the handler when execute at each time interval. Note that this script must be an object in sys
	    icall script; a cli script will not work.

	    Specify either active or inactive. Active is the default value.

	    When the handler status is active, the handler accepts events and executes the script as expected. However, when the
	    status is inactive, the handler will no longer accept incoming events and the script will not execute. Use the
	    inactive status when you wish to keep the handler as a configuration item and do not wish to delete it, but also do
	    not wish the handler to run.

	    A periodic icall handler can be moved to any folder under /Common, but configuration dependencies may restrict it from
	    moving out of /Common.
