  • HourThe number of hours between each execution of the cron job, or the hour each day (in military format) at which you wish to run the cron job. For example, 2100 to run the cron job at 9:00pm.
  • DayThe number of days between each execution of the cron job, or the day of the month on which you wish to run the cron job. For example, 15 to run the cron job on the 15th of the month.
  • MonthThe number of months between each execution of the cron job, or the month of the year in which you wish to run the cron job. For example, 7 to run the cron job in July.
