I'm trying to run a command once per day like so:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Label</key> <string>local.borgmatic</string> <key>ProgramArguments</key> <array> <string>/usr/local/bin/borgmatic</string> <string>--syslog-verbosity</string> <string>1</string> </array> <key>EnvironmentVariables</key> <dict> <key>HOME</key> <string>/Users/mike</string> </dict> <key>StartInterval</key> <integer>86400</integer> </dict> </plist>
The problem is this job never seems to run on its own. If it was just failing, I'd expect to see an error message from launchd in
system.log, but I don't see anything, even after leaving my computer running for several days with hibernation disabled. The job shows up in
launchctl list and runs fine when I start it manually via
launchctl start. It also runs automatically when I reduce
StartInterval to something smaller, like
10. Does StartInterval have some undocumented maximum?
Incidentally, this looks like the same problem reported at OS X launchd.plist.
