Can data collection jobs be run at the weekend?

Is it possible to choose the day(s) of the week when the data collection jobs run?

In Jazz V4:

The data warehouse section of the advance properties for /jts allows you to set the start time for the /jts data collection jobs and also the delay.

The data warehouse section of the advanced properties for an application (e.g. /ccm) allows you set the delay between runs of the data warehouse jobs for that application.  It defaults to a day but can be set to any value in seconds.  This means data collection jobs for the application can be run multiple times a day.

/jts/admin reports allows you specify the start time for the jobs to run in 24hr format.

Hi, John. I fear you have already located all of the settings available (and if you hover of many of them it suggests they not be changed).

In general, I think you'd want these jobs to run every day so that time-based reports/graphs don't have missing days (when values would need to be calculated as of that run). What is it you are trying to accomplish?

Hi - we thought we had observed that the data collection jobs weren't being run at weekends for some reason but copying/ pasting the job status results into a spreadsheet revealed that they were.  Therefore as you say I think I have access to all the required parameters to change settings/ frequencies if needed.
