Updating the Nightly Discovery Timer Job Schedule

The Nightly Discovery timer job is configured to run after all SharePoint usage analysis jobs have finished, which ensures that results of ControlPoint data analyses contain the most current cached data.  

If the timing of an existing SharePoint usage analysis job has changed or a new job is added, you can update the schedule of the nightly Discovery job to ensure that it continues to run at the proper time (that is, after all of the new and existing usage analysis jobs have completed).

NOTE:  It should only be necessary to update the nightly Full Discovery timer job schedule if a SharePoint usage analysis job has been added and/or the timing of an existing job has changed.

Note that the procedures below pertain to updating the Nightly Discovery timer job in Central Administration.  If you have the ControlPoint Discovery Service configured, follow the procedure for Changing Discovery Service Configuration and Settings.

To update the Discovery timer job schedule in Central Administration (SharePoint version 2010 and later):

1Open the SharePoint Central Administration site and navigate to the Scheduled Jobs page.

2Locate and click on the ControlPoint Discovery Job.

NOTE: During an upgrade from a version older than 6.0, the name 'Axceler' in the Discovery and Scheduled Job Review timer jobs is changed to 'ControlPoint'.

3Update the Recurring Schedule section as needed.

Update Discovery Schedule 2013

To update the Nightly Discovery timer job schedule in SharePoint 2007:

1From the Manage ControlPoint tree, choose Update Discovery Schedule to display the Update Discovery Schedule page.

Update Discovery Schedule window

2Click [Update].


Using the Discovery Service

The ControlPoint Discovery Service is an alternative to the (default) ControlPoint Discovery timer job, which runs from SharePoint Central Administration.  The ControlPoint Discovery Service runs as a Windows Service, and is especially suited to very large SharePoint environments as Discovery run time can be significantly reduced.


Windows Service DISCOVERY.

The ControlPoint Discovery Service can be configured at the time ControlPoint is installed or upgraded, or at any time when the Configuration Wizard is launched.  See Configuring ControlPoint Services for details.
