     atrun -- run jobs queued for later execution

     atrun [-l load_avg] [-d]

     atrun runs jobs queued by at(1).  Root's crontab(5) must contain the line:

     */10     *       *       *       *       root    /usr/libexec/atrun

     so that atrun(8) gets called every ten minutes.

     At every invocation, every job in lowercase queues whose starting time has passed is
     started.  A maximum of one batch job (denoted by uppercase queues) is started each time
     atrun is invoked.

     -l load_avg
	     Specifies a limiting load factor, over which batch jobs should not be run, instead
	     of the compiled-in value of 1.5.

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

     For atrun to work, you have to start up a cron(8) daemon.

     /var/at/spool  Directory containing output spool files
     /var/at/jobs   Directory containing job files

     at(1), crontab(1), syslog(3), crontab(5), cron(8)

     Thomas Koenig <ig25@rz.uni-karlsruhe.de>

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