It is recommended to execute the ratings refresh cronjob every three minutes. If there are no problems and you have a lot of products, you can increase the frequency to every minute.
Can be used to define a pause in seconds between each processed rating. Can be set globally for all executions with the option Cronjob pause.
// to set a pause of 2 seconds: bash script.sh Asa2_Cron_Ratings --pause=2
php option, you can tell the ASA2 cronjob what PHP executable it should use to execute the command. With some webhosters the standard command “php” executes an outdated version and there is a special command for each version, e.g. “php73” or “php74”.
Please check which PHP version is required for the use of ASA2 here: https://bit.ly/asa2-php-version
bash script.sh Asa2_Module_Repo_Cron_Refresh --limit=10 --php=php74
proxy_id you can define the proxy you want to use. You can get the ID from the proxy list. Make sure that the “ID” column is enabled (see Screen Options).
If this option is not used, ASA2 automatically determines a proxy.
// to process item 915 from the ratings queue bash script.sh Asa2_Cron_Ratings --proxy_id=10
quantity option can be used to set the quantity of products to be processed. Can be set globally for all executions with the option Cronjob items per run.
// to process 5 products in a cronjob run: bash script.sh Asa2_Cron_Ratings --quantity=5
queue_id you can selectively grab a product from the rating queue.
// to process item 915 from the ratings queue bash script.sh Asa2_Cron_Ratings --queue_id=915
verbose option to get more information on the console.
bash script.sh Asa2_Cron_Ratings --verbose
