Poll - Task schedules ?

What's your task scheduling look like?

Global Updating = Enabled for DAT, HIPS
Deployment = Immediately, Run task at every enforcement, All Products
DAT Update = Daily every 6 hours, DAT Only
HIPS Update = Weekly, HIPs Content
Engine Update = Weekly, Engine only
On Demand Memory Scan = Weekly, 3 days a week
On Demand Full Scan = Weekly, once a week, 20% CPU

Most all set to randomize by 20 mintues and delay missed tasks by 90 minutes (in the hopes of not hitting an offline machine at startup but it appears not to help)

These tasks support both local LAN based clients and field VPN clients.

I adjust Tasks during product Updates (Engine, Patch, VSE), Virus alerts and Microsoft Patching weeks.

Biggest issue - Laptop users who come in and get hit with a full VSE system scan, microsoft patching scan, Windows defender updates etc all at once with VSE being the killer.

As noted I'm set to "delay missed task" by 90 minutes @ 20% CPU usage for my system scans. Systems do not always seem to obey the CPU rule with scan32.exe spiking between 0 and 100% for 3-4hrs+ (especially on older systems and laptops).
