RE: debian cron: How do I change when /etc/cron.daily/standard is scheduled?


Under Debian, you just need to edit the /etc/crontab file. The system
automatically reloads the file, you can double-check for the reload by
looking at the cron log, e.g. "tail -n 20 /var/log/cron.log", for an entry
like this:

"Jul  3 00:02:01 [servername] /usr/sbin/cron[295]: (*system*) RELOAD

Subject: debian cron: How do I change when /etc/cron.daily/standard is

Please help.

My Debian workstation is veerry slow for 30 minutes at 06:30 a.m. when I
start work.
The following command is running:
 "find / /dev/pts /var /usr /redhat ................."
This is called from :
22821 22770  0 06:50 ?        00:00:00 sh /usr/sbin/checksecurity
which is called from:
22770 21282  0 06:50 ?        00:00:00 sh /etc/cron.daily/standard
which is called from
21282 21281  0 06:25 ?        00:00:00 run-parts --report /etc/cron.daily

How do I reschedule this maintenance to around 03:00? The 'man cron' page is
not clear:

"/etc/cron.{daily,weekly,monthly} directories allow to  add a  crontab file
to /etc/cron.d."

Thank you
