Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 985417
spacewalk-splice-tool is not quiet during successful cron runs
Last modified: 2013-10-01 07:12:00 EDT
Description of problem:
>> The output from this cron job, which runs every 10 minutes spits out its
>> info to standard out. Cron's default behavior is to mail standard out to
>> the user who the cron job is invoked as; eventually leading to
>> /var/spool/mail/splice becoming large. We should probably redirect this
>> to a logfile or /dev/null unless it actually *is* an error. (No news is
>> good news)
