Provides timers that asynchronously notify an application after an interval or at a specific time.
The User class in the System Static Functions API provides simple functions to suspend a thread for a given interval or until a specific time.
A heartbeat timer is similar to a periodic timer. However, if the application is busy handling another event when the timer event occurs, a periodic timer simple delays delivering the event, while a heartbeat timer will inform the application that it has missed the event.
