This article is aimed to provide an example that should help understanding dirscan's schedule functionality.


This applies to the latest UIM (as we speak) and dirscan's versions.


So, let's say you want to have your profile working from 11:25 to 13:35 daily.

You then need to provide that time frame in the "Restrict to time range" as follows:


That will automatically trigger the "Exclude time range" to look like this:



The "Exclude time range" could be more self-explanatory and shows something like From 11:24 to 13:36, but it does not. It just tells you that starting at 11:00 the profile is excluded (it does not say that at 11:25 it starts to work) and then, starting at 13:36 the profile is excluded again. 

To have a clearer understanding it is needed to check the "Restrict to time range" graph as well as the following info from the probe's Raw Configure (schedules/YourSchedule/recurrent_event_spec):


So, from here we can see that our profile is excluded from 13:36 to 11:24.

In a nutshell, in this scenario our profile will run daily from 11:25 to 13:35.
