About this task

A scheduled task runs every month to load balance the users in the email address groups used by the email digest. This task ensures that users are spread across the groups in a uniform way according to their mail domain. The task is configured in the news-config.xml file and looks as follows. Note that the default settings should not be modified.

<task serverName="unsupported" 
   interval="0 0 22 1 * ?" 
   description="Job to spread users in tranche" 
   name="PersonSpreadTranche"  > 

By default, the task runs on the first day of every month at 10:00 p.m. If you do not want to wait for the next scheduled task, you can run the task manually using the NewsEmailDigestService.loadBalanceEmailDigest() MBean command.
