Execution schedule recommendation#

The Execution schedule field allows you to set the feed to run automatically at specified intervals. Running the feed too frequently can strain resources and exhaust API rate limits. Follow your feed provider’s recommendations when setting the Execution schedule.

Dragos recommends that you:
