cron - trying to find if btrfsmaintenance is actually running.

looked in the journal -> no mention of the cron job starting,

I see cron jobs starting and finishing in the log:

If you don't see more, is because the creator of the cron job does not want you
to see it.


no mention of
btrfsmaintenance, no mention of balance, i finally nailed it by searching on
the activity that balance invokes "relocating block group". If i have missed
something let me know, otherwise this is not how a good interface should work.

seems to me cron operates on a "script and pray" principle

I will not try to convince you of using cron. Just don't try to convince me to
use timers, either.
