HELP - Need help with chron job on solaris

I need to write a chron job that runs at midnight local time stores collected data, clears counters

collects the output of sho atm counters and send that data to a collection file
send command clear counters atm 5/0 pvc all -no confirm
disable the enable mode
close out of redback
store file with time/date stamp
parce the newly gathered file into xcell.xls spread sheet and mail out the report as an automated function

build a directory to store data files for x amount of time

I need another chron job that will go in at 06:00 and just clear counters and logout that will allow 1st job to collect stats from 06:00am to 23:59pm daily

I'm new to Unix and was hoping someone could help?

You've got about 10 questions here. You won't find anyone that will do it all for you - so you're better off to ask more specific questions. If it looks like you're not making any attempt yourself- help will be scarce.

I'll give you a few pointers...although most of your questions don't have enough detail to provide an answer.

Do you know how to set up a crontab entry?
Saving a file with a date stamp....(use the search function in this forum - this has been addressed a number of times and you should find what you are looking for here).
Same with automated mailing.
look up find and mtime for the set period storage....

You'll really going to have to make a start on this - and when you've got into it and have some more specific questions, then come back. Good Luck.

Peter, thanks for the help. I'm so new to this, I'm not even sure of the specific questions to ask, but your reply has given me a start. I've started a basic script and I'll work on this today and post again as soon as I know the specific problems I may need help with.

Again, thanks for the help!
