POA background tasks 'Report raw traffic usage by dedicated VPSs' for some VPS nodes are scheduled to run during the daytime. It would be preferable to schedule the tasks to run during the nighttime.


The next run time for the "Report raw traffic usage by dedicated VPSs" tasks is based upon the successful completion of the previous invocation plus 24 hours, according to this formula:

next_start_time =  last_finish_time + 24 hours

Assuming the finite time necessary to perform the traffic usage reporting procedure, absolute run time of multiple repetitive invocations will slowly drift toward later hours.


Consider rescheduling these tasks periodically  to occur during the night as a temporary workaround. A permanent solution will be provided in future POA updates.
