in thread Cron or running process?

++ to the parent message.

To this point, cron's default behavior is to email all output to the user whose crontab invoked the process. Often times, the crontab output is redirected somewhere else , /dev/null being a popular choice, or other useful log file.

I tend to have my cron processes email success emails to one address, and failure to another address.

Good sysadmin's hook their processes into their favorite monitoring tools, TMTOWTDI.
