       atd - run jobs queued for later execution

       atd [-l load_avg] [-b batch_interval] [-d] [-f] [-s]

       atd runs jobs queued by at(1).

       -l      Specifies  a limiting load factor, over which batch jobs should
	       not be run, instead of the compile-time choice of 0.8.  For  an
	       SMP  system  with  n  CPUs,  you will probably want to set this
	       higher than n-1.

       -b      Specify the minimum interval in seconds between	the  start  of
	       two batch jobs (60 default).

       -d      Debug;  print error messages to standard error instead of using
	       syslog(3).  This option also implies -f.

       -f      Run atd in the foreground.

       -s      Process the at/batch queue only once.  This is primarily of use
	       for compatibility with old versions of at; atd -s is equivalent
	       to the old atrun command.

       atd won't work if its spool  directory  is  mounted  via	 NFS  even  if
       no_root_squash is set.

       /var/spool/at  The directory for storing jobs; this should be mode 700,
       owner root.

       /var/spool/at/spool The directory for storing output;  this  should  be
       mode 700, owner root.

       /etc/at.allow, /etc/at.deny determine who can use the at system.

       at(1), at.deny(5), at.allow(5), cron(8), crontab(1), syslog(3).

       The functionality of atd should be merged into cron(8).
