ATD(8)                     Linux Programmer's Manual                    ATD(8)

NAME
       atd - run jobs queued for later execution

SYNOPSIS
       atd [-l load_avg] [-b batch_interval] [-d] [-s]

DESCRIPTION
       atd runs jobs queued by at(1).

OPTIONS
       -l      Specifies a limiting load factor, over which batch jobs should
               not be run, instead of the compile-time choice of 0.8.  For an
               SMP system with n CPUs, you will probably want to set this
               higher than n-1.

       -b      Specifiy the minimum interval in seconds between the start of
               two batch jobs (60 default).

       -d      Debug; print error messages to standard error instead of using
               syslog(3).

       -s      Process the at/batch queue only once.  This is primarily of use
               for compatibility with old versions of at; atd -s is equivalent
               to the old atrun command.  A script invoking atd -s is
               installed as /usr/sbin/atrun for backward compatibility.

WARNING
       atd won't work if its spool directory is mounted via NFS even if
       no_root_squash is set.

FILES
       /var/spool/at The directory for storing jobs; this should be mode 700,
       owner daemon.

       /var/spool/at/spool The direcotry for storing output; this should be
       mode 700, owner daemon.

       /etc/at.allow, /etc/at.deny determine who can use the at system.

SEE ALSO
       at(1), atrun(1), cron(8), crontab(1), syslog(3), at.deny(5),
       at.allow(5).

BUGS
       The functionality of atd should be merged into cron(8).
