Pausing the sifter during heavy database

Learn how to configure the sifter during heavy database.

You can pause the sifter during times of heavy database access. This frees up database resources for other activities during heavy database activity. For example, to put the sifter asleep at 11 a.m.:

<mentor_set_name>.pause_sifting_at= 0 11 * * *

If you set <mentor_set_name>.pause_sifting_at, use the following setting to wake up the sifter afterwards. For example, to wake the sifter up at 4 p.m.:

<mentor_set_name>.resume_sifting_at= 0 16 * * *
