Hi Sri....

If i'm not wrong then you want to know the location where the log file for crontab is stored and what is the exact file name....right????

# 4  

if that is the case then you can look into the directory --

/var/log and you will find files by the name cron, cron.1, cron.2.....etc.

There's a size specified for the file and if it grows larger than the specified file size, then it is named as cron.<a no.> and a new file for new logs is created by the name "cron ".

Although if you want to specify a different location for the cron log files, then edit the file /etc/syslog.conf and look for the entry given for cron and edit it and specify the new location.
