What is atd?
atd Linux service



Explanation

atd service:
     Periodic Command Scheduler. It run commands scheduled by the 'at' program at their scheduled times.
Required(ON/OFF):      View complete List of Services
Home PC : NO
Server  : NO

     It is a task scheduling tool. Jobs are stored in /var/spool/at     Now lets see the manual of atd service.

Manual atd:
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 root.

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

/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).
