Issue/Introduction

I want a dirscan monitor to run once daily at 5 AM EST.

How do I configure the SCHEDULE option in the probe?

Environment

Release: 3.17 and earlier
Component: UIMDRS

Resolution

The probe currently can not take into account different time zones.

The probe will execute on a schedule based on the local clock of the system.

If the system is in EST and you want it to run at 5 am you would set it to 5:00:00.


if the system is on another time zone you would need to do a conversion from 5 AM EST to the local time for that time zone and set the values accordingly.


the format for the time will be in 24 hours format with the such as

HH:MM:SS



if you check the .cfg file after creating this you will see the format such as:

recurrent_event_spec = RRULE:FREQ=DAILY;INTERVAL=1;BYHOUR=05;BYMINUTE=00;BYSECOND=00
