Add-on "vtcron v.1.03" for D-Link NAS
« on: December 04, 2014, 03:56:57 AM »

[Add-on] vtcron v.1.03

[Description]
The software utility Cron is a time-based job scheduler in Unix-like computer operating systems. People who set up and maintain software environments use cron to schedule jobs (commands or shell scripts) to run periodically at fixed times, dates, or intervals. It typically automates system maintenance or administration-though its general-purpose nature makes it useful for things like connecting to the Internet and downloading email at regular intervals.

[Version]
Add-on Package v1.03

Hi,

I have installed vtcron on my DNS-320L, but script added through it doesn't start. But if I login to my NAS using ssh and manually edit crontabs it works just fine. Could you help me debug that problem?

When I manually restart vtcron it gives in terminal:
/mnt/HD/HD_a2/Nas_Prog/vtcron # ./restartcrond.sh
Restart Path is /mnt/HD/HD_a2/Nas_Prog/vtcron
0
cronb: applet not found
/mnt/HD/HD_a2/Nas_Prog/vtcron #

Also, ps doesn't show cronb as running...

You are right, my mistake. I didn't take into account that not every firmware is embedded Perl.
Fixed. Reinstall vtcron v1.03

* DNS-320L
* vtcron
* 1.03
* Command does not run at the desired time. And if I add a @reboot, it seems to fall into a bootloop. Device firmware 1.06

The addon is not a full-fledged "cron daemon". "Cron" of busybox package. this is more than enough for my needs. "@reboot" In busybox not.

find /mnt/HD/HD_a2/CamBas -type f -mtime +30 -exec rm -f {} \; become find /mnt/HD/HD_a2/CamBas -type f -mtime +30 -exec rm -f {} \\\;

Looks like vtcron stops working every few days: I made a cronjob to add a line to a log every 5 minutes, so looking at my log I can see now that 2 days ago vtcron stopped working again. It restarts when I make a change in cronjobs. This happens every x days.
Why does it stop, and how can I let it restart automatically?

I personally use "vtcron" to collect backups to my NAS. Everything works perfectly.

View crontab system log
/mnt/HD/HD_a2/Nas_Prog/vtcron/log/crond.log
maybe you can find the cause of the problem in the log
