Re: Is anacron right for me?

Anacron does a more fuzzy time check.  It does not give precision of
"has it been one hour".  It will insure that cron.{daily,weekly,monthly}
are run though.  For you, I do not see the gain of anacron UNLESS your
machine is never on at the same times.  Normal cron only runs at say
1am, where anacron will say "it has been >= one day, I need to run
cron.daily".  So if your machines frequently miss cron.daily's run, then
yes anacron is right for you.  Other wise if it is just a case of your
machines missing a day or thee, that is not a problem.  If no logs are
created, there are none to rotate.
