#10247 closed defect (fixed)

disable various anacron tasks

Description

Noticed in the field that an 8.2.1 XO-1 was running particularly slowly and top showed some stuff happening with RPM.

Turns out that cron.daily creates a list of packages installed in the system. And this bug is still present in 10.1.2.

While exploring I found that we are also doing a lot of other pointless stuff scheduled.

I propose marking these files as non-executable:

/etc/cron.daily/logrotate
/etc/cron.daily/makewhatis
/etc/cron.daily/mlocate
/etc/cron.daily/readahead
/etc/cron.daily/rpm
/etc/cron.daily/tmpwatch
/etc/cron.weekly/99-raid-check
/etc/cron.monthly/readahead-monthly.cron

  • Version changed from not specified to 1.5 Software Build os206 aka 10.1.1

Sounds fine. #9986 was where this slowness was previously captured. #9947 was where we noticed prelink.
