atd [-l load_avg] [-b batch_interval] [-d] [-s]
atd runs jobs queued by at(1).
-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
-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

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