Configuration delay Data type

The delay data type contains fractional numbers, such as 4.1 or 100.4. These numbers are base 10. Octal and hexadecimal numbers are not allowed.

The typical use-case for this data type is in timers. When a timer needs to have sub-second resolution, the delay data type is used.

The resolution of delay is no more than microseconds, but usually in milliseconds. The maximum value for delay depends on the configuration directive, but is usually less than one hundred (100).
