This is a must have for me. We have divided our prod server(s) up into sites for environment management (scratch/dev/uat/prod).
So we get a load of contention for the schedules. I would love to be able to restrict dev & UAT to only use a particular schedule, thus freeing up the backgrounder for more important prod work.
So a huge +1 for me on that.
Right. That is what I thought. Any idea if this feature will be available anytime soon ?
I tried searching in the Ideas forum, but there seems to be nothing in there as well.
If there isn't a suitable idea, why don't you create one?
You certainly have my vote, and I suspect Paul's to!

Is there a possibility of creating Site level schedules?
It is not possible.
Agreed with Mark, create an Idea. I'd vote for it, it's a great one!
I was also looking for the similar kind of info last week and found that this is a must have feature in enterprise environment.
I would like these two features
Site Level Schedule
Limiting the Number of Schedules for Site for each schedule.
We have around 200 jobs scheduled at an hour and all of them trigger at the same time ( Parallel execution) and are waiting in Queue for almost couple of hours before they get executed and its difficult to maintain and control them . Its good to have customizable limit so that users can select other schedules if its overloaded.
Vishwanath, increase your Backgrounders. I went from 2 to 4 (8 core VM server) and it made a very big difference. I suspect increasing the Data Engine may help as well. Adding worker servers would likely help, too.
You should also look at why so many tasks are being scheduled every hour. That's not a discussion for here (please start a new thread) but sounds like something to be worked out.
Yeah ,, that might be improving us a bit , Adding workers is an option for sure but that's is related to buying more cores. which we are considering and we are still in 8.2.7 so the data engine acts only as active passive mode.. So will check once we start our 9.0 testing and see if we gain any improvements over there . I just wanted to bring down the scenario how limiting the schedules for site can be helpful.
