About scheduler


The scheduler defines a job and its schedule (timetable). A job is a routine task or tasks defined as a command list and completed according to a specified schedule which is the timetable for completing a job.


There are two types of mode in schedule,

  • Periodic mode - A recurring interval that continues until you delete the job
  • One-time mode - Job is completed only once at a specified time.


The scheduler allows you to maintain the activities such as;

  • Quality of Service policy changes
  • Data backup
  • Saving a configuration
