Hi,

I have a scheduled search for ERROR from particular log which runs every hour and if there is any error will send alert through mail.But in some times we are getting mail only after 3 or 4 hours when error happens.If an error happens on 1:00am, we are getting notification at 5 am not at 2:00am as per the schedule.I dont have any clue how to debug this.Please help?

Regards
Sreejith.A
