- cronsearch for term
Cron is a program (a daemon) that runs in the background on a Linux system and periodically completes tasks you assign to it. Cron "wakes up" every second or so and checks to see if there are any jobs for it to do, and does them. A crontab file defines which jobs cron completes.
