This is a Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 system (RHEL). We manage this system using CFengine.
We have several cronjobs which are running twice as often as usual. I checked the cronjobs under
/etc/cron.d/ and this directory contains the actual script called
host-backup, and also contains a cfengine backup file called
host-backup.cfsaved, as so:
Does this operating system execute all files at
/etc/cron.d/*, or does it only execute files which match a certain pattern. Can I configure this, and where is this defined?
I cannot find this answer in the RHEL or CentOS documentation.
