Ideally i would like to get the following setup done for most production VMs:

Monday to Friday: "mon..fri"
between 06:30 and 19:30: ?
Once per hour: */1:00
Starting Time: has this to be set by the 06:30 parameter or the 19:30 parameter ? So if i want to have Job1 run at 0630 and Job2 run at 06:40 and Job3 Run at 06:50 - how would i go about that ?

Is there something like the https://pbs.proxmox.com/docs/prune-simulator/ for the Scheduler ? Or a description how the parameters work ?

So i'm trying to acheive the following schedules:

Job 1: Monday through Friday - once per hour - First run at 06:30 - last run at 19:30
Job 2: Monday through Saturday - once per hour - First run at 06:40 - last run at 19:40
Job 3: Wednesday to Sunday - once per hour - First run at 06:50 last at 17:50


Basically i have around 40-ish VM's per node (2 nodes total) i wan't to incrementally backup. i'd like to stagger them, so that they do not interfere too much with the PBS which runs on a 3rd node that hosts light "telemetry". I'd create "groups" . e.g.
Node 1: (Fileserver01 + Mailstore) && (Exchange-Server01 + Mailgateway) && (AD01) && (Database01)
Node 2: (Fileserver02) && (Exchangeserver02) && (AD02) && (Database02) && HA(Business PP01 to BusinessApp19)

Basically what i am unsure about is how to do hourly increments when specifiying the days and to make sure they do not run 24 times, but rather only 14 times per day and to group run at e.g. 10 minutes past the hour. group 2 at 20 minutes past the hour ... group 4 at 40 minutes past the hour, etc.


Thanks for link - i shall go through that in the morning :)

Job 1: Monday through Friday - once per hour - First run at 06:30 - last run at 19:30
Job 2: Monday through Saturday - once per hour - First run at 06:40 - last run at 19:40
Job 3: Wednesday to Sunday - once per hour - First run at 06:50 last at 17:50
so the schedules for that would be:

job1: 'mon..fri 6..19:30'
job2: 'mon..sat 6..19:40'
job3: 'wed..sun 6..17:50'

the rule here is that each part (minute/hour) act independently and you can choose on which values it triggers
