cron

process scheduling daemon

Variants:
The cron daemon is a background process that runs particular programs at particular times (for example, every minute, day, week, or month), as specified in a crontab. By default, users may also create crontabs of their own so that processes are run on their behalf.

Output from the commands is usually mailed to the system administrator (or to the user in question); you should probably install a mail system as well so that you can receive these messages.

This cron package is configured by default to do some basic daily system maintenance tasks, such as creating backups of key system files. Other packages, such as checksecurity, can provide further maintenance tasks.

The lockfile-progs package is recommended as it will prevent /etc/cron.daily/standard from running multiple times if something gets jammed.

/usr/share/doc/cron/README.anacron

To ease coordination with anacron, the invocation of the run-parts for
the /etc/cron.daily, /etc/cron.weekly, and /etc/cron.monthly directories
was changed to the form

         test -e /usr/sbin/anacron || run-parts --report /etc/cron.daily

What this means is that if anacron has been installed, it will
be responsible for running those scripts. This is the standard
configuration of anacron: if yo
