I'm about to start on a module that will be used to log certain stats every few seconds, however I can't seem to find any examples to help me begin the process. Everything I have found utilizes events or HTTProviders that fire off when something happens or a user connects to a URL. How might I go about just beginning the process(creating the project in the IDE, the new module wizard gives me options to create event methods, but nothing that just runs once) of just creating a module that would just run once at server start time and I would just run a loop every few seconds to log the info that I need?

Appreciate the help, let me know if I didn't describe what I'm looking for well enough.
