Scheduler HelpNAV
The eMule scheduler screen

The scheduler allows you to automate some of the administration tasks you can perform within eMule. It could be used for raising up- and download during night time whereas the bandwidth remains free for other applications during working time.

The scheduler works by creating action profiles with one or more actions to perform at a set time or weekday.
The first list box shows the created Profiles with Title, Days to perform the actions and its Start Time. A chosen profile shows the defined actions and time settings in the Details area.

o Enabled
Activates the whole scheduler

o Remove
Deletes the highlighted action profile

o New
Creates a new action profile. New profiles are automatically displayed in the Details view to make the appropriate settings.

This area shows the current settings and actions for the chosen action profile.

o Enabled
This checkbox activates the chosen profile. One or more profiles can be activated at any time.

o Title
Title or description of the profile.

o Time
Actions can be performed daily or only on certain days of the week. Each action also has to have a Starting Time and Ending Time.
If no action is valid at a given time, eMule automatically uses the default settings from the other Preferences dialogs.
