Goodbye "Engine". Welcome "Execution Per Day (EPD)".

Goodbye "Engine". Welcome "Execution Per Day (EPD)".

Since early 2014, we had been using "Engine" as our resource indicator representing cron job resource occupation. Today, we took it out from our system and replaced it with a new indicator "Execution Per Day (EPD)".

"Engine" is an abstract concept. There is no counterpart in real world that can be converted to it easily. Therefore, it has caused much confusion to our users, and consequently, much effort of ours to explain this concept to our users.

Quite differently, "Execution Per Day (EPD)" is natively intelligible. Beyond doubt, it's a life saver for EasyCron users and us :)

Actually, "Engine" has a simple calculation formula:
Engines = ceil (execution times per year / 1000)

And EPD got this one:
EPDs = execution times per day

There's not much difference? Right?
