RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for atd (redhat section 8)

ATD(8)				    Linux Programmer's Manual				   ATD(8)

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 proba-
	       bly 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 daemon.

       /var/spool/at/spool The direcotry for storing output; this should be mode 700, owner  dae-
       mon.

       /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).
