    How to start/reload jobd from crontab

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20

    Desired Outcome Goal:
    Start/restart daily the Aleph jobd

    1. Create a script like this one (I call it job_start):

    #!/bin/csh -f
    source /exlibris/aleph/u20_1/alephe/aleph_start
    source $aleph_proc/def_local_env
    csh -f $aleph_proc/jobd $ALEPH_VERSION >& /tmp/jobd_aleph

    It reloads the Aleph environment definitions and runs the jobd script.

    2. Put it in the Aleph crontab using a line like this to execute the script

    05 15 * * * csh -f /exlibris/aleph/a20_1/alephm/jobd_start

    * Adjust the execution time and paths according to your needs.
