Cron hierarchy question

Hey all -

I would like to know if there is a way to set the order in-which crons (@daily) can be ran.
I know that I could move them to start are designated times (opposed to using @daily) but am hoping there is a way to do this without going the latter route.

Cheers
Chris

Bump for the guy, can t help him on my end.

Maybe someone in the know haven t seen your post yet.

The one and only time I attempted to use cron I failed so I am of no help here sorry team. Maybe Mr @Head_on_a_Stick has some insight?

Erm, embarrassing admission: I’ve never used cron :blush:

I find that systemd timers are really easy to use and understand though, see the ArchWiki for details.

Good idea! @Chris do you think this would help?

Not sure, I’ll have a look. In the interim, I did a reorg of the @daily from A - Z. While not all the jobs process chronologically, it is close enough to produce satisfactory results for now.

I’ll go ahead and mark this solved and if I come up with a solid solution, I’ll edit.
Thanks all for looking into this.

Cheers
Chris
