Say I have several cron scripts that need to run every 15 minutes. I could set them to run:
*/15 * * * * , but then they all run at the same time. It seems silly for the server to sit idle for several minutes and then suddenly try to execute a dozen scripts all at the same time.
Is there a way I can have one script run at minute 1, 16, 31, 46 and another at 2, 17, 32, 47?
In other words, I want each script to run every 15 minutes, but I don't care that they run specifically on the quarter hour marks.
