I have tables that I need to run ETL jobs on every 5 mins. But, a batch job runs every day for an hour at the same hour. During that time I can't query the source. With the current scheduler setup; it appears that my only option would be set up multiple schedules. Each running once a day, and a separate schedule for every 5 minute increment of the day with the exception of the one hour my source can't be touched. Rather than that degree of hassle, doesn't it make more sense to set up a scheduled with and/or/not criteria? Example: Run every X minutes on Y days Except: during %t am - %t am on Z days
I've seen some applications that have a visual scheduler for setting the exception times. That would be pretty cool too. Bonus points if you can make an admin console for the server which allows the admin to set blackout date/time by table or DSN for all users (override their schedules).
