  How to schedule the batch for every two hours per day? 
  I try like this 

   String schedule = '0 0 1/2 * * ?';
   System.schedule('Jobname',schedule,new SampleTracking());

but i don't know it is corrrect or not.I execute it in developer console it shows the start time as after 2hours from the current time.

Thanks

You can do that with the following cron string.

apexScheduledJob myJob = new apexScheduledJob ();
String sch = '0 0 0,2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16,18,20,22 ? * *';
System.schedule('My Job', sch, myJob);

This job will run every 2 hours, at the top of the hour, starting at midnight.
