Hi ,

I have a cron job scheduled to run at every hour ;



Suppose I have created another job at 3:38 PM, will it run at 4 PM/5 PM/6 PM or 4:38 PM/5:38 PM/6:38 PM ?

Another question , what would be the cron expression if I want to run the job every hours in besiness hours i.e. between 7 AM to 7 PM.

is this right "0 0 7-19 ? * *" .But sometimes the jobs gets fired after 19 hours also.

Please let me know.

Thanks,
Amol

Not sure this is a unix cron here. I don't think that unix cron has a setting for seconds. It should have only 5 fields, not 6.

Amol, where are you setting this expression ?

The fields of crontab expression
minutes hours day_of_month month day_of_week


If I want to run the job every hours in besiness hours, should be like this
0 9-18 * * 1-5
it will run every hour between 9AM to 6 PM from Monday to Friday
