The way you wrote it, it will run every five minutes, between midnight and 1 am. Change the line to
*/5 * * * * /usr/local/bin/sysmon

and everything should be fine.

uupoll - poll a remote UUCP site SYNOPSIS
uupoll [ -ggrade ] [ -n ] system DESCRIPTION
Uupoll is used to force a poll of a remote system. It queues a null job for the remote system and then invokes uucico(8). The following options are available: -ggrade Only send jobs of grade grade or higher on this call. -n Queue the null job, but do not invoke uucico. Uupoll is usually run by cron(5) or by a user who wants to hurry a job along. A typical entry in crontab could be: 0 0,8,16 * * * /usr/bin/uupoll ihnp4 0 4,12,20 * * * /usr/bin/uupoll ucbvax This will poll ihnp4 at midnight, 0800, and 1600, and ucbvax at 0400, noon, and 2000. If the local machine is already running uucico every hour and has a limited number of outgoing modems, a more elegant approach might be: 0 0,8,16 * * * /usr/bin/uupoll -n ihnp4 0 4,12,20 * * * /usr/bin/uupoll -n ucbvax 5 * * * * /usr/sbin/uucico -r1 This will queue null jobs for the remote sites at the top of hour; they will be processed by uucico when it runs five minutes later. FILES
/etc/uucp/ UUCP internal files /usr/spool/uucp/ Spool directory SEE ALSO
