Assume we want to configure a service to run every day at 9:00 PM.

To do this, create a monitoring period that covers 9 minutes near the desired time. The monitoring period description for our above example would be: every sun-sat 8:55PM-9:04PM.

Next, assign this monitoring period to the service and set a check interval of 5 minutes to ensure it will run at least once during the defined window.


It is good practice to reduce max rechecks in this case to ensure that an alert can be sent out during this time period.
