Task scheduling on Linux

CRON is a task scheduler (a daemon) which runs commands at predetermined times and intervals. You can choose the exact time at which the command will run by setting the minute, the hour, the day and the month. You can also define the periodicity, e.g. a command can be configured to run every ten minutes, every fourth hour, or at a particular time on Sunday night.
