Powershell script not running always on schedule - Splunk Add On for Microsoft HyperV

Hello, I am running Splunk Add for Microsoft Hyper-V  on 10 different Hyper-V hosts with a splunk forwarder each, but not all powershell scripts are executed on schedule.    My problem is with the long running scripts getvm_inventory.ps1 and getvm_inventoryext.ps1. The rest of the scripts are executed on schedule.

I have the following inputs.conf

############# VM #############
[powershell://GetVM_Inventory]
script = . "$SplunkHome\etc\apps\Splunk_TA_microsoft-hyperv\bin\GetVM_Inventory.ps1"
schedule = 0 0 4-8/1 ? * *
source = microsoft:hyperv:powershell:getvm_inventory.ps1
sourcetype = microsoft:hyperv:vm
index = ctc_hyperv_inventory
disabled = 0

[powershell://GetVM_InventoryEXT]
script = . "$SplunkHome\etc\apps\Splunk_TA_microsoft-hyperv\bin\GetVM_InventoryEXT.ps1"
schedule = 0 20 4-8/1 ? * *
source = microsoft:hyperv:powershell:getvm_inventoryext.ps1
sourcetype = microsoft:hyperv:vm:ext
index = ctc_hyperv_inventory
disabled = 0

 

from the logs I see that they are executed correctly . The only difference from other scripts is the execution that is much longer.
