Timedelay in Schneduled workflow

I have a workflow on on schedule event’

# * is a special character in YAML so you have to quote this string
- cron: ‘*/5 * * * *’

It should have triggered every 5 minues but they are getting triggered at random times.


In most cases, there is a delay when triggering the scheduled workflow. This is a legacy question.

Generally the delay time is about 3 to 10 minutes. Sometimes it may be more time, even dozens of minutes or more than one hour. However, if the delay time is too long, the scheduled workflow may be not triggered at that day.

In addition, you also need to know is that,

The shortest interval you can run scheduled workflows is once every 5 minutes.
