Introduction to the Job Schedule and the Calendar Setting
In this article, we will introduce you 2 common example patterns of the calendar and job schedule setting.
Executing jobs every x minutes
Q. How can I execute a job every 3 minutes if the minimum interval setting is 5 minutes?
A. You can do that by preparing multiple schedule settings.
For example, you can execute a job every 3 minutes by creating 5 job schedules with 15-minute interval every 3 minutes.
Execute every 15 minutes from “00” minutes every hour
Execute every 15 minutes from “03” minutes every hour
Execute every 15 minutes from “06” minutes every hour
Execute every 15 minutes from “09” minutes every hour
Execute every 15 minutes from “12” minutes every hour
Check the Job Setting[Plan] view to confirm that the jobs are scheduled to be executed every 3 minutes.
Executing jobs at the end of each month (Part1)
Q. How can T set the job so it will be executed at the end of each month?
There are months ending at the 28th, 30th, and 31st so I can’t specify a specific date.
A. That is possible by using the “execute x days before/after” setting.
This setting allows Hinemos to execute jobs x days before or after a specified day of the month.
Therefore, you can execute a job on the last day of each month by setting it to be executed a day before the first day of each month.
Check the Calendar[Monthly Schedule] view to confirm that the jobs are scheduled to be executed on the final day of each month.
Executing jobs at the end of each month (Part2)
Q. How can I set the job so that if the final day is a weekend it will be executed on the previous Friday?
A. That is possible by using the “Substitute” feature
This feature allows Hinemos to shift the operation day forward and backward when it overlaps other non-operation days.
The example below will set the weekends (Saturday and Sunday) as the non-operation days and shift the operation day to the nearest Friday.
Substitute Time：-24 Hours
Setting a minus value enables Hinemos to specify previous days.
Specify up to how many times to repeat the shift.
This time, we will set it to maximum “2” times since the last day of the month may be a Sunday.
When the final day of the month is Saturday the 30th,
the operation day will shift to Friday the 29th.
When the final day of the month is Sunday the 30th,
the operation day will shift to Friday the 28th.
As you can see, combining the calendar setting with various patterns allow
operators to control the days of operation in detail.
That is all for today!
