In SQL Anywhere 16 Sybase Central, where does the Event Properties "Next scheduled time:" value come from?

The displayed value seems to be the previous time rather than the next time.

I can't find any related column in the catalog colums.

It seems likely you may have already figured out where this info is coming from but here's the answer with links for others.

The SCJView uses the DB_EXTENDED_PROPERTY( ) function to display this. The portion of the select list in the query used to extract that looks like this:

 cast("DB_EXTENDED_PROPERTY"('NextScheduleTime',"E"."event_name") as timestamp)
  as "next_schedule_time"

correlated on event_name.

I don't see the previous time behavior so that might need to be looked into.

If you are working with a 10.0.0 or early 10.0.1 server it may be possible you might see a missed schedule that way. Engineering Change #480547 was fixed in 10.0.1 bld#3562 and all more recent releases. The issue there was if the schedule's 'start time' included milliseconds, it could fail to 'fire'.

Otherwise, see what happens when you revert/change the public/dba timestamp_format. If that has any impact you might want to compare your results to the behavior describe in Engineering Change 625647.

What does the [NextScheduleTime][2] syntax mean?

That was supposed to be a link inside of a code formatted section. Failing that I have corrected the original answer.
