cron script best practicesby jimbus (Friar)
|on Aug 10, 2005 at 19:43 UTC||Need Help??|
jimbus has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I've got a hand full of scripts running in cron on a sun box that basically process log files and insert the digested data into mysql. Things appear to work flawlessly when I run them by hand, but when left alone as cron scripts, I end up with 90 some processes and issues accessing the data in my web app because all connections are used up... Apparently, I'm not all that and a bag of chips :(
Have you guys got any pointers for DBI or cron script best practices?
