Scheduler interval

I’ve a Scheduler task running every 30 seconds. Occasionally, the ‘Next Run’ value displays as a huge number. Is there any advantage in increasing the value of the interval such that the service called is executed before the interval is over?


Once after running the service, you see a huge number in the ‘Next Run’ value just before a thread is assigned to that service.


The huge number normally indicates that the service is currently running. I don’t see that there would be any advantage per se to changing the interval while the service is running.

From my understanding a huge number or sometimes a negative number indicates that the server at that point is not able to resolve when its gonna run the schedular next.

This is however not a show stopper and eventually the service would execute as desired.

The interval is not how long the task runs for. It is for, when should the start of its thread execute. Good day.
