    Nintex Workflow Scheduler Timer Job

    Summary
    What is the difference between the Nintex Workflow Scheduler timer job and the standard workflow timer job?

    Solution
    The "Nintex Workflow Scheduler" timer job is tasked with starting any Nintex Workflows that have been scheduled in the SharePoint farm. This job executes within the SharePoint timer service (OWSTIMER.exe). In addition to this coupling to the SharePoint timer service, some Nintex actions, primarily the delay-based actions, are executed within the SharePoint timer service when they are rehydrated into memory after idling in an inactive state.
