When you turn on a job to collect the status tab on the bottom will be filled in with some important stats. The requester name, pay amount, action mode, accepted hits, missed hits, number of hits checked and the elapsed time is shown. The most important stat would be the elapsed time at the end.
The elapsed time gives you the exact time that job will be checked. The more jobs you have collecting the longer this time will be. If you have added some weight then this stat will be very important to get the correct number of weights you need. This really shows you how the cycle timer actually works so you can understand better.
