      Note: The point of the test is to make sure that the upgrade step works as expected in two different scenarios.

      1. Prepare a fresh default installation of a recent released version.
      2. Log in as admin.
      3. Go to Site administration > Server > Tasks > Scheduled tasks.
      4. Locate the "Check for updates" (\core\task\check_for_updates_task) and confirm it is using the default schedule - minute: 0, hour: */2
      5. Upgrade the site to the patched version.
      6. Locate the "Check for updates" task again.
      7. TEST Check that the task is now using a new schedule and both minute and hour is set to a random value.

      Custom schedule not affected by the upgrade

      1. Prepare a fresh default installation of a recent released version.
      2. Log in as admin.
      3. Go to Site administration > Server > Tasks > Scheduled tasks.
      4. Change the schedule of the "Check for updates" (\core\task\check_for_updates_task) to some non-default value.
      5. Upgrade the site to the patched version.

    Description

      Checking traffic on our update server we're seeing hourly spikes that increment the server load. This is caused mainly because:

      • Over 90% of request are happening on the hour
      • Requests are happening every 2 hours

      Spikes could be easily reduced if that task:

      • is run twice per day and/or
      • is run in random minutes instead of the hour

      Considering it would be applied only in updated sites and load is getting higher it would be great if the modification is accepted and issue is integrated.

      Thanks in advance!
