List of Timer numbers

Below is a list of timer numbers used in Osmocom programs.
Many are specified by 3GPP specifications, indicated by a T (like T3103).
There are also various Osmocom specific timers, indicated by an X (like X23).

There are also numerous timer configurations in Osmocom predating introduction of T and X timers, not listed here.

yes abis X15 OsmoBTS Time to wait between Channel Activation and dispatching a cached early Immediate Assignment
yes net X16 OsmoBSC Granularity for all_allocated:* rate counters: amount of milliseconds that one counter increment represents. See also X17, X18
yes net X17 OsmoBSC Rounding threshold for all_allocated:* rate counters: round up to the next counter increment after this many milliseconds. If set to half of X16 (or 0), employ the usual round() behavior: round up after half of a granularity period. If set to 1, behave like ceil(): already increment the counter immediately when all channels are allocated. If set >= X16, behave like floor(): only increment after a full X16 period of all channels being ccupied. See also X16, X18
yes net X18 OsmoBSC Forget-sum period for all_allocated:* rate counters: after this amount of idle time, forget internally cumulated time remainders. Zero to always keep remainders. See also X16, X17.

yes X22 [[OsmoUPF:]] PFCP request timeout, how long after a missing response to retransmit a PFCP request
yes X23 [[OsmoUPF:]] Number of PFCP request retransmission attempts
yes X24 [[OsmoUPF:]] PFCP response timeout, how long to keep a response, in case its same request is retransmitted by the peer
yes net X25 OsmoBSC Timeout for initial user data after an MSC initiated an SCCP connection to the BSS
