I have a production server running a scheduled task that I simply can't track down.
It seems that it is running
dbdump.bash on a daily basis, but none of the cron files have a reference to that or anything running a back up!
I've tried to
grep -r "dbdump.bash" / to search for the offending job, but no luck so far. The backups are large, and if not manually removed will completely fill up the hard drive.
How can I track this down? Thanks!
Here's the contents of
# /etc/crontab: system-wide crontab # Unlike any other crontab you don't have to run the `crontab' # command to install the new version when you edit this file # and files in /etc/cron.d. These files also have username fields, # that none of the other crontabs do.
