online maintenance frequency

How often should the online defrag be hitting the pub1.edb file?  At 1 in the morning it starts and every hour it defrags the file until 5 when it is scheduled to stop, the priv1.edb is only done once per night.  

I don't want to limit the maintenance window.  Is this normal behavior?  If not, how do I stop it?

This is normal.

Why is it that priv1.edb is scanned once but pub1.edb is scanned again and again through the maintenance window?

Do you have something else, like backups or virus scanning scheduled during that time that could be interrupting the defrag?
