The default value for this config key is 0 55 0 * * ?, which runs at 12:55 am daily. To run the reports independently of the other maintenance tasks at a different time, set the config key schedule.daily-maintenence-reports instead. Make sure that there's a significant time gap between the two (for example, schedule the maintenance at night and the reports during business hours). If both activities are scheduled too close to each other, they might run in parallel. For more information, see Change the schedule timing.
