cronie [2011/11/29 12:39] (current)
Line 1: Line 1:
 +====== cronie ======
  
 +cronie is a cron job daemon that is being phased in as a replacement for fcron. ​ The reason for the change is that [[fcron]] will often spawn processes that turn into zombies (history is vague).
 +
 +=== Configuration ===
 +
 +Run ''​crontab /​etc/​crontab''​ to set the default cron jobs.
 +
 +=== Syntax ===
 +
 +Unlike other cron daemons, the crontab line must not have the user in it.  Anything after the timing sequence will be executed.
