Cronjob difference between mautic:emails:send & mautic:broadcasts:send

If I understand correctly:

mautic:broadcasts:send prepares the queue spool for sending?

mautic:emails:send actually sends out the email?

So the cronjob for broadcasts should be MORE frequent than the emails?

Any particular recommendation for time intervals?

Are both used anytime a campaign is triggered for sending an email?

Thanks,

Hello.
There this guy explains it in detail during the Lagos meetup.
It depends how often you run your cron.

Thanks, I’ve reviewed several times.

I understand that the different cronjobs, batch limits and queue settings allow for granular control depending on the server capacity and the mautic requirements needed (import vs emailing for example.)

However I’m still not understanding how to set the different cronjobs properly for optimum efficiency.

There’s no rule of thumb for settings per GB memory? or Contact numbers? or Emails sent? for frequency and batch limits?
