• Execution time / Start date: Time of first execution.
  • Expiry date / Time: After this point, no further commands will be executed.
  • Repeat Job: A job can be repeated at fixed intervals or on specific days. Public holidays can be excluded separately. You can update the list of public holidays under Misc > Scheduled Jobs > Public Holiday Lists.

    If Update, Update when Starting or Update when Shutting Down is selected as the command for the job, Repeat Job should not be enabled.
  • Cancel job execution: When jobs are executed repeatedly, incomplete jobs can be aborted. No further commands will then be sent to thin clients.

The max. processes, delay and timeout options make sense for all commands which take a long time to execute or cause heavy network traffic, e.g. downloading a firmware update, codec or snapshot. To prevent a large number of thin clients downloading data from a file server at once, it is advisable to reduce the number of simultaneous threads (e.g. to 10) and to set up a delay (e.g. 1 minute).
