I have a Linux gentoo system, which performs a cronjob every day at 3:10 in the morning. However, no file in
/etc contains any related information to this particular cronjob, and the result of
crontab -l is
# check scripts in cron.hourly, cron.daily, cron.weekly and cron.monthly MAILTO="" 0 * * * * rm -f /var/spool/cron/lastrun/cron.hourly 1 3 * * * rm -f /var/spool/cron/lastrun/cron.daily 15 4 * * 6 rm -f /var/spool/cron/lastrun/cron.weekly 30 5 1 * * rm -f /var/spool/cron/lastrun/cron.monthly */10 * * * * test -x /usr/sbin/run-crons && /usr/sbin/run-crons
/etc/cron.daily probably contains the job in question, but for a time at 3:01! Why is that? Is the actual cronjobn stored somewhere else? Does it take gentoo 9 minutes to realize to execute a job?
- I have a different crontab job for 13:20 (in cron.d) which is executed exactly at 13:20 every day.
