[Users] t_check_status

I have read the tm documentation, many many times. I guess I don't follow, probably because I didn't write the code.
The docs for tm say that setting fr_timer_avp overrides fr_timer. So? Why does it need to be overridden? Why not just use fr_timer?
If the lcr module doesn't have any timers of it's own, then what these for...?

I really don't even get the point of what an AVP is. Something to do with databases. I don't see why database interaction is needed to set a timer. That's crazy.

	lcr module doesn't have any timers of its own.  it just uses tm timers.

	i only responded to your lcr related question. t_check_status has
	nothing to do with lcr.
