Site Sync and manual cron

I have 56 sites connected and I am seeing it take 24 hours to get through the entire scheduled sync when using wp-cron and calling it manually from the server so I reverted back to setting the cron jobs as the docs call for Disable WP Cron - MainWP Documentation. This appears to be out of data since at least the maintenance job has been renamed. Are there updated lists of what and when they should be run?

For reference, before 4.1, sync would start @ 5am and be done by 9am

I’ve got the site Site Health page on my MainWP nagging me about missed WP Cron jobs, which may be due to my calling wp-cron.php with my system cron and wget every 10 minutes when the WP Cron in MainWP has a job every minute.

This is definitely an area where some more clear and thorough guidance would be extremely helpful.

For the start,

Can you please post the community system report from your MainWP Dashboard for review? The report is located in your Dashboard under Status → Server, on the top right of the page.

Hi Eric, earlier today I sent you a new version that I got from our dev team, can you please let me know if it works better for you?

I have the updates installed and will test. The scheduled sync is in 11 hours so I should have info in the morning.
