How often does it check missed posts?

Finally!

I’ve been having problems with a news site that has 30+ scheduled posts daily. I always had 1-5 missed scheduled posts every day and could not find a solution in more than a year, not even a real cron job could do the trick.

I’ve been running this plugin for almost a month with success, zero missed scheduled posts. Thank you!
