ManagedFolders setting Exchange2010 SP3

Hello,

I'm trying to understand how Managed Folder Assistant is running. I found 3 relevant parameters:
- ManagedFolderWorkCycle
- ManagedFolderWorkCycleCheckpoint
- ManagedFolderAssistantSchedule

I understand how the first 2 are working, but the last one is confusing me as I'm reading that exchange 2010 SP1 assistant is  throttle-based, is this last parameter still doing something?

Looking at the event log I can see daily events 9017, 10027 ans 9018 for this assistant so my guess is that the assistant is run on a daily bases which would be consistent with a WorkCycle of 1day and not with a Schedule set on Wednesday for 5am to 8am

Dear user,

These three terms defines as below


 The Managed Folder Assistant is a throttle-based assistant. Throttle-based assistants don't run on a schedule. Instead, they're configured to process all mailboxes on a Mailbox server within a certain period of time (known as a work cycle).

 Additionally, at a specified interval known as the work cycle checkpoint, the Managed Folder Assistant refreshes the list of mailboxes to be processed. During the refresh, the assistant adds newly created or moved mailboxes to the queue.
 It also reprioritizes existing mailboxes that haven't been processed successfully for awhile due to failures and moves them higher in the queue so they can be processed during the same work cycle.

In Exchange 2010, the Managed Folder Assistant is a schedule-based assistant that's scheduled to run from 01:00 through 09:00 (1:00 A.M. through 9:00 A.M.) every day. You can modify the assistant's schedule to make sure there's minimal user impact. You can also start and stop the assistant manually by using the Exchange Management Shell.

Thx for your answer.

One point is still not clear, I'm still discovering a lot on Exchange, as I have Exchange 2010 server, which is SP3 I guess (version 14.03.0123.003) is Managed Folder Assistant working with a schedule or is throttle based ?

In second case should I clear the ManagedFolderAssistantSchedule setting, or it is not used.
