Does the following seem reasonable for a homeserver:
Followed this guide.

Day 01: scrub
Day 08: SMART(long)
Day 15: scrub
Day 22: SMART(long)
[4AM for all]
[Scrubs: threshold: 10 days.]

Day 05: SMART(short)
Day 12: SMART(short)
Day 19: SMART(short)
Day 26: SMART(short)
[3AM for all]

Daily: periodicSnapshot
[6AM to 6AM]
[Snapshot: pool: top-level]
[Snapshot: recursion: enabled]
[Snapshot: expiration: 2 weeks]

Daily: Plex background maintenance
[2AM to 4AM]

.
.
.

Also, will a running task (even the short SMART test) be affected
by Plex simultaneously performing background maintenance at similar hours?

Plex requests a universal start and end time for scheduled tasks.
I believe defaults are set to daily in a 3 hour window.
I cut an hour to prevent overlapping the scrubs and SMART(long) tests.
I was less worried about overlapping the SMART(short) tests.

Should the Plex window remain a full 3+ hours?
Can this window overlap any freeNAS tasks without concern?
