When cycle period is less than cron specified interval action is triggered every cycle inside of cron interval.
set daemon 1 # set poll cycle 1 second
check program some_program with path "/opt/some_program" every "22 * * "
Expected - run once somewhere during minute 22th. Result - run every second during minute 22th.
So if we write every " * * *" we get not once per minute, but every second.
