Controlling Music scan frequency

MinnMotoMinnMoto Posts: 23Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

I rarely change my music library, but I often see the scanner running. Not a problem really, but I have thousands of songs and it runs during the day. Is there a way to throttle the frequency of this run? Can I get it to once a week?

    Have you read through this site yet: https://support.plex.tv/hc/en-us/articles/200289526-Library

    I have my "Update my library * " all unchecked and only update manually unless during maintenance window (which you can also set the timeframe for that as well)

    PLEX Setup:
    Server Side: Dell R410 (16 Core | 16GB RAM) / Ubuntu Desktop 16.04.01 64bit / Synology RS812 & RS814 (9TB @ RAID 5)
    Client Side: Roku 4 (x4)
