This is what I added to the top of my /etc/crontab file to remind me what
# * * * * * 'command to be executed - preceed with a usersname (such as
# | | | | | to run command as that user'
# | | | | |
# | | | | +----- day of week (0 - 6) (0 = Sunday)
# | | | +------- month (1 - 12)
# | | +--------- day of month (1 - 31)
# | +----------- hour (0 - 23)
# +------------- min (0 - 59)
# an asterix (*) in any field matches all values.
# To create a periodic event, use */n where n is the required period.
# For instance, to run a command every 5 minutes, do the following
# */5 * * * * 'command to be executed'
Hope it helps clean the issue of setting up a cron job. As for rsync, maybe
I'll know better when I'm done setting up a cluster system which I'm in the
