I have searched all of Al Gore's internet and can not find what I want. I even RTFM but I can't find what I am looking for. I don't want to ever hear from cron again. Not in a cron log, not in the syslog, not in the auth log. I want to stop it all together. Complete darkness.
Currently, I have many cron jobs firing off wget every minute. It is a limitation in the application which I will fix another day. Each time it runs, I gotta hear about it in the syslog and the auth.log. I know I can change it and have it log to another file but I don't want that. If cron fails I will know before I even have time to open up a log file. Can I please just have some peace and quite?
Here is an example cron I have running (There are many)...
0,10,20,30,40,50 * * * * /usr/bin/wget -nv -t 5 --connect-timeout=4 -w 4 --connect-timeout=20 -nd --no-cache --no-cookies --delete-after -U "CRON PROCESS" http://site.com/file.php?id=6 >/dev/null 2>&1
Here is what I am getting in the syslog
Aug 23 19:16:01 ord1 CRON: (epl) CMD (/usr/bin/wget -nv -t 5 --connect-timeout=4 -w 4 --connect-timeout=20 -nd --no-cache --no-cookies --delete-after -U "CRON PROCESS" http://site.com/file.php?id=160 >/dev/null 2>&1)
Here is what I am getting in the auth.log
Aug 23 19:16:01 ord1 CRON: pam_unix(cron:session): session closed for user epl
I have rsyslog and here is what I have in the config
It is filling up the hard drive very fast. Any suggestions?# First some standard log files. Log by facility.
