Just another cronjob in the tab

Today, i made some shell scripts to automate some repeating job for freeBSD server i maintain. Jobs like, maintaining database backup for security reason. Also placed one for checking if apache tomcat is up and running. Take necessary steps and notify by email if not. Also one for checking and generating some useful listing from DB for company’s weekly work process.

Finally placed all the script in crontab to work in timely manner. In this process some useful handy dandy sites were: crontab, shell script and tools.

Hope these will be helpful to some one out there.
