Crontabs and logrotation.
Under /etc/crontabs, I have the following:
59 * * * * root run-parts /etc/cron.hourly
01 0 * * * root run-parts /etc/cron.daily
02 0 * * 1 root run-parts /etc/cron.weekly
02 0 1 * * root run-parts /etc/cron.monthly
The logrotation script is in the /etc/cron.weekly and the mail stats
summary is in the /etc/cron.daily.
This was designed so that the mail log summarizer would be able to read
and sumarize the previous 24hours and dispatch this in an email *before*
the the logrotation script comes into effect.
But, this doesn't happen. The maillog summary for Saturday (delivered
00:01 Sunday Morning) is always blank... Despite the fact that this
script should occur before the logrotation. I could move the
/etc/cron.weekly back an hour or so, but that would give a distorted
report for Sunday.
Ideas anyone? Is there a cron process that I need to restart or
