View Full Version : [ubuntu] Trace origin of mysql table check

September 27th, 2010, 11:07 AM
I have a mysql server which "goes down" every day at 9, because the debian-sys-maint user needs to run a table check, for no particular reason.

I assume it's a cron-job, but I can't find anything related to this. There's the mysqlautobackup script, but that runs at 4 in the morning, which is expected and perfectly acceptable.

Any suggestions on how can I trace the source of this?

Have you checked the default cron files?

vim /etc/crontab

sudo crontab -u debian-sys-maint
sudo crontab -u root

Btw, if it is a cron job you should be able to see it stating so in your logfiles /var/log/messages or /var/log/syslog
