As described in Specifying the scheduled_method Element, the scheduled_method element provides both method information and scheduling information for scheduled services. When a manifest with a scheduled_method element is imported, the data described in this section is stored in the service configuration repository.
Restarter properties. See Restarter Properties for information about the restarter and auxiliary_state properties. Recall that a scheduled service is a type of periodic service.
schedule property groups. The scheduling attributes of the scheduled_method element are stored as properties of a property group of type schedule. Property groups of type schedule can have the properties described in Scheduled Service Scheduling Constraints Attributes and Other Scheduled Service Scheduling Attributes. See Scheduling Invocations at Irregular Intervals and Scheduling Executions of a Scheduled Service Start Method for examples of how these properties are used. Administrators can use the svcprop and svccfg commands to show and modify these properties. Use the svcprop -g schedule command to list all the properties of property groups of type schedule, as described in Showing Properties in a Property Group Type in Managing System Services in Oracle Solaris 11.4.
Last and next start method invocations. See Last and Next Start Method Invocations for descriptions of the last_run and next_run properties. The value of next_run is the next scheduled start method invocation as described in Scheduling Executions of a Scheduled Service Start Method.
start property group. The exec and timeout_seconds values and method_context information are stored as properties of a property group named start. This start property group represents the start method for the scheduled service and is defined in the same way as the start method for any other service.
