Say you have a number of scheduled jobs that all start at the same time, perhaps coming from a master server (MSX). If they use shared resources (virtual machines in same host and/or a common SAN) you might want to spread the load a bit. I usually call a stored procedure as a first job step, and that procedure wait a random number of minutes between 0 and 30. This is the RandWait procedure.
You find the code here.
