Having trouble with Cron
Maybe someone can help out with this. I have a bash script I run at 1am
every morning via an entry in cron.d. It records an echo in a file when
done so I can record it running. The trouble I'm having with it is that
it's recording that's it has completed about once a minute from the hour
starting a 1 am until 2 am!. I'm not sure it's actually running that
entire time. I can't imagine that it would run exactly for a perfect
hour then stop. If I run the script by hand it only takes a few minutes
and records only one entry into my log file.
In /etc/cron.d/backuppublishers I have....
* 1 * * * root /bin/backuppublishers
The script is an rsync routine and an echo to my log file.
