Sync schedules and scenarios

While you configure the inSync CloudCache Server, you can schedule sync operations from inSync ​CloudCache Server to inSync Cloud during off-peak hours. This allows you to optimize your WAN bandwidth consumption. 

Note:  inSync CloudCache Server schedule defines the start time of sync operations. Sync operation starts just once daily, as per the  defined schedule.

If you add a new device and the inSync CloudCache Server sync operation has already begun as per the schedule, you must wait until the sync operation start time the next day. If you need to start a inSync CloudCache Server sync operation immediately, you must change the inSync CloudCache Server schedule to the next hour. For more information on changing the sync schedule, see Manage inSync CloudCache Server.

The following table lists various scenarios for sync operations on weekdays.
