Here's is my cron settings for that particular requirements.
*/10 7-18 * * 1-5 root php /var/www/cacti/poller.php > /dev/null 2>&1
The cron settings above means that poller.php will run every 10mins, from 7:00am to 6:50pm, and from Monday to Friday only. This will coincide with the business operating hours only, and saving precious CPU power for other task such as system backup every night and every weekend.
