>> Hey Cybrarians. Welcome back to
00:00
the Linux+ Course here at Cybrary.
00:00
I'm your instructor Rob Goelz.
00:00
In today's lesson, we're going to
00:00
be moving into Module 12,
00:00
where we will cover job scheduling and automation.
00:00
Upon completion of this lesson,
00:00
you are going to be able to understand
00:00
the content coverage for Module 12,
00:00
and we'll determine the scheduling
00:00
and automation objectives
00:00
covered on the Linux+ exam
00:00
and how they relate to the module.
00:00
What will you take away from this module?
00:00
Well, you're going to learn how to automate and
00:00
schedule work on a Linux system,
00:00
and we're going to understand
00:00
the Linux processes that are scheduled
00:00
and the importance of having
00:00
these recurring automated processes.
00:00
We're going to determine how we can schedule
00:00
that recurring work and use
00:00
scheduling and automation tools
00:00
to set up recurring tasks.
00:00
Then finally, we're going to leverage
00:00
this information to determine
00:00
when to schedule or automate a job.
00:00
In this module, we are going to cover
00:00
the cron system and then we're going to
00:00
discuss and use crontab.
00:00
We're going to look at the at command,
00:00
we're going to look at job control tools,
00:00
and then finally we're going to learn the kill command.
00:00
But with that, we've reached the end of this lesson.
00:00
In this lesson we covered the
00:00
>> path forward in Module 12,
00:00
>> and we talked about the scheduling and
00:00
automation content that's covered on
00:00
the Linux+ exam and how it
00:00
relates to the content in the module.
00:00
Thanks so much for being here and I look
00:00
forward to seeing you in the next lesson.
