I'd like my Ubuntu 20.04 server to run crond with the -L15 flag. What's the right way to configure it to do so?

See man cron.

/etc/init.d/cron does not give me the impression I should mess with it.

  • man cron does not mention the -s flag. What is it supposed to do?

  • Updated with link to documentation. I can't find that man documentation on my system though (e.g. man has no entry for crond) so I suspect I might be looking at the wrong thing.

    As the cron daemon (even in your documentation) is actually called cron, not crond, you should use man cron. No mention of -s flag there, as I already wrote. I'm afraid what you want is simply not possible.

    I'll create a new question and edit this one only slightly.
