PERL/CGI Scripts - the legacy continues

This section will be left for the dreaded PERL issues and comments.
Often we have calls for CGI requests. We used Perl a lot in the old days but found that it could not handle heavy loads especially when it comes to a Community like this.

continues legacy - Scripts PERLCGI

I am using a script that calls for .log info every 24 hours. This is the part of the code that makes the call:

use Time::Local;
$tmtodaybegin=timelocal(0,0,0,(localtime)[3,4,5]); #time to begin today
$tmyest = $tmtodaybegin - 3600 * 24;

How do I change this so that it checks every 1 hours, half hour, etc rather than every 24 hours?

I am amazed that there is not a way to to get sendmail to time the way it sends out email so that you do not get 1000 emails being sent to the mail server all at once.
