Trigger builds periodically in Jenkins

We can automatically trigger our job builds at a certain schedule by configuring the build periodically option under the Build Triggers section of the Job Configuration.

Schedule field follows the syntax of cron expression. Specifically, each line consists of 5 fields separated by TAB or whitespace:


* specifies all valid values

Symbol H(for hashing) is used to produce even load on the system.
