So the answer to your original question is "roughly sometime between 4am
and about 6:15am".

Also, the cron job calls yum with "-e 0" option. That means if there were any errors and your system is not updated, you are not going to be told anything about it... Removing "-e 0", and changing "-d 0" to "-d 1" might be good idea. "-d 1" will produce output only if yum was acutally doing something, so if any packages were actually upgraded, root (or whoever root is aliased to) will get some kind of report in the mailbox.

You'd get a report about packages installed/updated/removed using yum from logwatch if it wasn't for: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=140429



If you make the changes mentioned in the bugzilla, it does work. It's
been working fine for me for a long time now.

I know; comment #12 about the RPM containing the patch is by me...


Paul.
