I have Anacron set up to run a backup daily, weekly and monthly. The monthly seems okay, but the daily and the weekly are running roughly every half hour every day!
Here is my /etc/anacrontab
# /etc/anacrontab: configuration file for anacron # See anacron(8) and anacrontab(5) for details. SHELL=/bin/sh PATH=/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin HOME=/root LOGNAME=root # These replace cron's entries 1 5 cron.daily run-parts --report /etc/cron.daily 7 10 cron.weekly run-parts --report /etc/cron.weekly @monthly 15 cron.monthly run-parts --report /etc/cron.monthly # PERIOD DELAY IDENTIFIER COMMAND @daily 3 Rsnapshot_daily /root/scripts/rsnapshot_launcher.sh daily @weekly 15 Rsnapshot_weekly /root/scripts/rsnapshot_launcher.sh weekly @monthly 30 Rsnapshot_monthly /root/scripts/rsnapshot_launcher.sh monthly
I've checked /var/spool/anacron/Rsnapshot_daily and it has todays date in it and was last updated less than 30 minutes ago. It's now 6pm and the daily Rsnapshot task has been run 11 times today and the weekly 10 times so far.
What could be going on here? Thanks.
