Scheduling Jobs for Automatic Execution

Carole Williams,

You can set up processes to run repeatedly, at specific times, without any human intervention needed. Examples of such processes may be logfile analyzers, network or security monitoring tools, filesystem maintenance jobs, and others. To save you from having to run these jobs manually, the cron daemon can be set to automatically run these types of processes at times you specify. Each process will run as the user associated with the task.
