Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I run a crontask every hour that reindexes my search engine. It occasionally doesn't work. Search sorts will not work correctly, until I manually reindex.

My question is, is there anything in this log that looks abnormal or potentially responsible for rejecting the script/runner ?

I am using Sunspot-Solr.

Note, my crontask is separated by spaces

There's nothing in that log which looks unusual - but if it were failing (and this was detected by the software) then it should be reported in the email sent by crontab on completion. –  symcbean Aug 11 '10 at 14:05
    
thanks symcbean. that's worth of an answer.. strange then. I guess its something else causing it. –  Trip Aug 11 '10 at 17:30
