ATD(8) Linux Programmer's Manual ATD(8)NAMEatd - run jobs queued for later execution
SYNOPSISatd [-l load_avg] [-b batch_interval] [-d] [-s]
DESCRIPTIONatd runs jobs queued by at(1).
OPTIONS-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 Specifiy 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
-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. A script invoking atd-s is
installed as /usr/sbin/atrun for backward compatibility.
/var/spool/atjobs The directory for storing jobs; this should be mode
700, owner daemon.
/var/spool/atspool The direcotry for storing output; this should be
mode 700, owner daemon.
/etc/at.allow, /etc/at.deny determine who can use the at system.
SEE ALSOat(1), atrun(1), cron(1), crontab(1), syslog(3), at_deny(5),
The functionality of atd should be merged into cron(1).
