Join Chaim Krause for an in-depth discussion in this video Scheduling processes, part of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server Essential Training.
- [Instructor] When I talked about the shell environment…I said that sometimes it's good for automation…compared to the GUI.…The way to do that in SUSE Linux Enterprise Server…is by using the cron daemon.…If we run sudo system control…status…cron…we'll see that the daemon is loaded and running…and what we now need to do…is enter the configuration in order to execute files.…Those are kept in the etc directory…so let's change there.…
And let me do a listing in grep for cron…and we'll get the cron directories.…These are the directories that hold the crontabs…so let's take a look at what's in cron daily.…And there are several scripts on there that are run…on a daily basis…to do automated tasks like rotate logs…and check on raids, do backups…things like that, that…you want to fire off every day…or if you put them in cron dot hourly…it'll fire off hourly.…
Or monthly.…There's also a way to add your own tasks to the cron…and that is by running crontab with an E for edit.…And it's gonna bring up, basically, the vi editor…specially suited for working with the crontab.…
