Default: 0 (indicating that this parameter is disabled)
Range: 1–86,400 seconds (24 hours)

Note: The sched_delay_secs parameter is mutually exclusive with the daily parameter. If you specify both daily and sched_delay_secs in a data source section of the configuration file, sched_delay_secs overrides daily regardless of the order in which they are specified.

Use the sched_delay_secs parameter to specify a fixed delay between the time a launched client, running a process command for the data source, terminates and the launching of the next process command for the data source. To disable the sched_delay_secs parameter, comment it out or set its value to 0.
