[Nagiosplug-devel] Timeouts w/o alarm

I would like to add timeout-management to a plugin, which uses the  
VMware-VIperl-Module. as mentioned in the coding-guidelines, these  
plugins reset the alarm-timer.

"Use of the alarm is recommended noting that some Perl modules (eg  
LWP) manage timers, so that an alarm set by a plugin using such a  
module is overwritten by the module. (workarounds are cunning (TM) or  
using the module timer) Plugins may import a default time out  
($TIMEOUT) from utils.pm."

About the mentioned "module timer": I don't know, what is meant with  
it and can't find something similar on CPAN. Any idea or other solution?

Thanks, Ingo
