Can anyone please tell me about the following behaviour? I want to stop the batch tasks to be run in the background, so I stopped the cron using this command
$ sudo /etc/init.d/cron stop
And after this I can see the message
[ ok ] Stopping cron (via systemctl): cron.service.
I created one batch task to check whether this is working or not, but cron is still running every minute and processing the tasks.
Please tell me how do I stop cron to not process any task?
Thanks in advance.
