Automated Discovery schedules Analyze phase for small jobs periodically

While a job with large amount of tables/schema is in process, other small jobs can finish Import phase fast, but they may have a very long delay till Automated Discovery to start their Analyze phase. The idea is to periodically schedule some Analyze for small jobs as well to reduce their delay.

    Thanks for your idea. We are re-visiting the current Metadata Discovery and the underlying Job Framework to allow for a better managment and distribution of compute required to complete the analysis and classification events. This is meant to allow for greater efficiency in such Jobs.
