Hi,

You Can use cron schedule: Link below http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.0.1/Alert/Definescheduledalerts#Schedulethealert

It looks like:

*/5 * * * *       : Every 5 minutes
*/30 * * * *      : Every 30 minutes
0 */12 * * *      : Every 12 hours, on the hour
*/20  * * * 1-5   : Every 20 minutes, Monday through Friday
0 9 1-7 * 1       : First Monday of each month, at 9am.

Use this cron schedule:

0 */3 * * *

That will run the alert at 00:00, 03:00, ..., 21:00. Make sure you don't have a huge bunching up around a specific minute if the minute isn't important to your report, so use maybe 1 */3 * * * for some and 2 */3 * * * for others.
