Custom Alerts - Configured for "Day' - do they fire Nightly?

Hello All -

Wanted to check with you on this plugin. When configured to “Day”, it is expected to get the alert whenever there is a immediately condition match. Say Unique visitors more than 10. Ofcourse after processing the archiving cron job from the backend, it is expected to fire this Alert whenever the Unique visitors count increases to 11. But it seems that the Alert is getting fired only during the completion of “Day” and post mid-night.

Is this expected behavior. This doesn’t make sense to me.

Thanks in advance.


Validated this again today. The SMTP based mails are not getting sent only the history of alerts are shown in the “History” tab. so they are not getting fired even nightly.
