Default: daily = 08:00, 12:00, 17:00, 24:00
Range: 12 entries in ascending order from 00:00 to 24:00

Note: The daily parameter is mutually exclusive with the fixed_delay parameter. If you specify both daily and fixed_delay in a data source section of the configuration file, fixed_delay overrides daily regardless of the order in which they are specified. The service notifies you of this situation by writing a message to the log file.

Enter the times you want the service to launch a process command for the data source. You must specify 24-hour time (for example, 5:00 for 5:00 A.M. and 17:00 for 5:00 P.M.). The range for minutes is 00-59. You can specify up to 12 times for the daily parameter. However, you must specify the times in ascending order.

  • The values 00:00 and 24:00 are equivalent for midnight.
  • 24:00 is allowed only so that you can put it at the end of the list of times in ascending order.
  • 24:01 is not allowed; instead, specify, 00:01.
