System supports a schedule. This function allows a policy rule to take effect in a specified time and controls the duration of the connection between a PPPoE interface and the Internet. The schedule consists of a periodic schedule and an absolute schedule. The periodic schedule specifies a time point or time range for periodic schedule entries, while the absolute schedule decides a time range in which the periodic schedule will take effect.

Periodic Schedule

Periodic schedule is the collection of periods specified by all of the schedule entries within the schedule. You can add up to 16 schedule entries to a periodic schedule. These entries can be divided into 3 types:

  • Daily: The specified time of every day, such as Everyday 09:00:30 to 18:00:20.

  • Days: The specified time of a specified day during a week, such as Monday Tuesday Saturday 09:00:15 to 13:30:45.

  • Period: A continuous period during a week, such as from Monday 09:30:30 to Wednesday 15:00:05.

Absolute Schedule

An absolute schedule is a time range in which a periodic schedule will take effect. If no absolute schedule is specified, the periodic schedule will take effect as soon as it is used by some module.

  1. Select Object > Schedule.
  2. Click New.
