Re: question about cron



It should also be noted that if the server is under heavy load (in my experience), script execution under cron may be delayed. You will probably need to watch for that as well.

check whether lots of queue waiting for execution with cron.

Like somebody had done mistake that every minute the backup job will run and
the job was around 10gb.

So before ending the one cron other will start immediately and will be in
spool dir.

So please check for something like this.

May help ful to you.

Then check the spool dir in /var.

# chkconfig --list crond
crond           0:off   1:off   2:on    3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off
# service crond status
crond (pid 3311) is running...

/var/log/cron may be helpful.
