Cron on the User Interfaces

Using the cron linux system, you can execute scripts at a regular defined time on our mX machines.

At T2B, we have made the choice to have a shared crontab between every mX UI. This means that running

 crontab -e

on any UI will give you access to your cron tasks.

Since the tasks are shared, we've made sure they will execute on only one UI. We've set it to m4 for now, but you can check this with

crontab -c

To write cron tasks, we suggest to get help from to make sure the task will execute at the correct time you wish for.
