Specifying times and periods

The period determines when the report is run. You can specify the period in hh:mm:ss (hours:minutes:seconds), for example:

Period Comment
1:00:00 Run the report every hour
6:00:00 Run the report every six hours
72:00:00 Run the report every three days
Monday Run the report each Monday
15th Run the report on the 15th of each month
25th June Run the report on the 25th of June

You can also specify the time of day to synchronize the report, for example:

Time Comment
6:00:00 Synchronize the report at 6:00 am
12:00:00 Synchronize the report at 12:00 midday

The time synchronizes the time of day to run the report and, with the Period, determines when the report is run, for example:

Time Period
6:00:00 1:00:00

In this example, the report is run every hour, on the hour. If you start your runtime system at 7:25am, your report is run at 8:00am, and then every hour after that.
