2.3 Cronjob Output

When run, a cronjob can print something on its standard output or error streams. The output it produces can be sent via email to a given list of addresses, appended to a file, or reported via syslog. This output redirection can be configured either globally, or individually for each job. This is controlled by the following variables:

MAILTO
_MICRON_MAILTO
_JOB_MAILTO

Send the output via email.

_MICRON_SYSLOG_FACILITY
_JOB_SYSLOG_FACILITY

Report each output line via syslog.

_MICRON_OUTFILE
_JOB_OUTFILE

Append the output to a file.

These settings are discussed in detail in the following subsections.
