UPM script to send syslog keepalive messages every hour

Userlevel 1
We currently have our switches set up to send syslog messages to a centralized server which will send an alert out if a device hasn't sent a message in for over 4 hours. Some of our switches are pretty quiet and we wanted to know if it is possible to have a UPM script that will send a syslog message every hour?

You could create an UPM timer to run every hour that just creates a dummy log event.
create upm profile Create_log
create log message "keep-a-live"

Easy enough. Thanks!
