comment How can I tell a script is running under cron?
I added that there are other features that I want to run only when under cron. For implementation, it might be better to explicit enable these features via the command line but my question is whether you can tell if you are under cron.

comment What determines the time to first ping response in an OS?
@joeqwerty in some managed services, the failure to respond to ping is escalated to the owner of the server. When a new VM is started up there will be a certain delay until Ping replies starts and these are logged as failures. Picky customers have asked "Why are we getting alerts?". I want to know exactly what services have to be up for Ping to be returned. e.g. Naïve administrators may assume erroneously that the network card will return pings as soon as it gets power, but that is obviously incorrect.
