Learn how to schedule a task in UNIX


: UNIX has task scheduling through crontab and at utilities.

Scheduling a job in UNIX using cron:-

  • In order to create a job using cron, first create an AASCI text file. Using a text editor, the command is inserted. To run the job, enter “crontab name .txt”.
  • To check the scheduled job, “crontab-1”.

To remove the scheduled job, enter “crontab-r”.
