Scheduler at midnight



  • I have a small question about the scheduler in pfSense.

    If I want to set up a time interval that crosses the midnight for example during night-time (from 11pm to 6am), the WebUI alerts me that the starting time cannot be greater than ending time. I take it the correct way to do this is to use two intervals i.e. from 23:00 to 23:59 and another from 0:00 to 6:00, is this correct? In this case does that leave a one-minute gap in between both intervals during which the scheduler is not active?

    Cya!

    Yes.

    No. The scheduler runs at 0/15/30/45.

    No. The scheduler runs at 0/15/30/45.

    Ooh, I see. So that means that whatever time I program in will be rounded to the closest multiple of 15 minutes?

    Really not sure what you are asking? The available options are 0/15/30/45/59 when you look at the dropdown menu. So, there's really no rounding.



  • Haha.

    I am sorry, but I was not close to a terminal with WebUI access while I asked that question. So I assumed there was a textbox present instead. Good, then this answers my questions. :)
