Is it a good practice to have a bash script in a VPS with the following skeleton:
#!/bin/bash while true; do /path/to/other-bash-script-that-does-stuff.sh sleep 24h done
This is to avoid touching the Cron configuration. Will this cause memory/cpu consumption problems? The script would be loaded at boot time.
UPDATE: Based on the comments, I am asking also how to check if Cron settings are working fine without waiting the time needed for a natural start of the cron job. (I am a very newbie Cron administrator)
Thank you very much for your replies!
