Scheduling report generation
When a report is created, it is automatically assigned a scheduler. You can modify the schedule for the currently selected report from the Assigned Schedule tab of the Reports node to define when and at which frequency the report is to run. When it is created, the scheduler is deactivated by default. Initially, when a report is assigned to one or more objects of the same type, the same scheduler is created and applied to all objects. However, this common schedule can be modified for the individual object at their respective assigned reports location. The default settings of the scheduler's timer are to execute the report once a minute until manually stopped. The timer settings can also be modified manually by editing the CronSpec entry in the Timer module of the respective device.
