Comment: correct the frequency of scheduler operation


The opReports scheduler is not a long-lived daemon process, but  rather meant to be run suitably frequently from cron. The scheduler does log to opReports.log, but also prints error messages of higher urgency to STDERR, where cron will pick them up and mail them to root (or whatever recipient you have set up). By default opReports creates an /etc/cron.d/opreports which triggers the scheduler once every hour5 minutes for recurring reports and every minute for one-off reports.

Recurring Schedules

Recurring jobs are processed repeatedly, as soon as the scheduler determines that the end of the report period for that schedule is past.
