Workload spreading

Whatever jobs you have to schedule, try and spread them out through the production period so that there is no concentration in any one moment. Try also to avoid scheduling activities during times when normal user traffic in the network is very heavy, for example during the morning when users commence working and deal with accumulated emails.

Failure to do this might cause a bottleneck at the Mailbox.msg queue, which causes delays in updating the Symphony file, which in turn creates delays in the availability of job statuses to conman, the Dynamic Workload Console.
