Scheduling a pentaho DI job
Is it possible to schedule a Pentaho Job to run multiple times in a day for the same day, for example for the job to run every hour of the night from 9pm to 4am. I am currently working on a Pentaho Job and realized that unless you make use of interval, you may not be able to schedule it to run multiple times a day, the options are just for Once a week, Once a month, once a day and you specify one hour of the day, or at an interval, where if you specify that a job for example should run after every 1 hour, what happens is if the job started at say 08:05 am and completed at 09:45am, the next job run of the job will start at completion time + 1hr which will be 10:45am.
Generate a token file after the completion of the first job, another job starts when it see the token file after 1 hr using the "Wait For" step
