I configured a cronjob (running a bash script) with
crontab -e which locally copies some data from one hard drive to another (
rsync) and after that compares them (
I executed the script manually to see if everything runs as planned. It copied 7 GB and took about 30 min. When it is started as cronjob it takes 4h, again copying 7 GB.
The data and script had not been changed since the manual call and the cronjob call of the script.
- May it be that cronjobs run as daemons with very little priority?
- If so, how can I change that?
