Title: Add WEEKLY_TIME for weekly crons
- openSUSE-11.4: Unconfirmed
+ openSUSE Distribution: Done
Requested by: Richard Ems (rems0)
Partner organization: openSUSE.org
When running cron jobs some of them can increase IO heavily, slowing
the system down, like suse-updatedb from findutils-locate, doing a
large find on the filesystems. On production servers being used by
several users, these scripts have to be started at non working hours.
In /etc/sysconfig/cron we already have a variable called DAILY_TIME
which controls at what time the scripts in /etc/cron.daily are being
started by /usr/lib/cron/run-crons .
A similar approach would be very useful for the weekly crons, allowing
a better control of the day and time when weekly cron jobs are started.
