Cron Tasks

Cron is a program/daemon that runs in UNIX and will schedule other programs to run at specific times. For example, many of the activities on CSuite are logged into files which can become very big. To ensure that the size of these files are controlled they are rotated daily and eventually deleted when they become too old. The rotating is done by cron, usually overnight when the the demands on CSuite are reduced. This is very useful for the administrator of CSuite because then they only have to worry about one program running - cron!
