I have an android app with a timer. By default, it is displayed as 00:00:00 (Hours, Minutes, Seconds). The user can press the H M S and drag the scrubber around the circle to change the hour, minute, or second, depending on which one is clicked.
I want to create a cron job which will run every 5 minutes. I have understood the concept of setting the condition of 'every five minutes' from a previous answer on the same topic. However, i do not understand the part where it says /path/to command. i have the format for every 5 minutes as */5 * * * * and i have set root as the user.
I'm running Ubuntu 14.04, after 30 minutes I get a performance loss which can be reproduced by opening and closing gedit, when the slowdown is active it takes 2 seconds to close an empty document as opposed to < 500ms without. This effects all applications in a similar way.
Unusual thing is that this occurs consistently at 30 minutes uptime.
