11.6. Scheduling Script Runs with Cron

Administrators may create some scripts to perform routine maintenance on their JBoss ON systems, such as deleting old bundle versions to improve database performance or to add newly-discovered resources to the inventory automatically.
Scripts can be run through the JBoss ON CLI using a simple cron job. For example, an administrator writes import.js to add discovered resources to the inventory automatically and runs it daily:
vim /etc/cron.daily/rhq-cli

# run JON CLI every morning to import new resources
cliRoot/rhq-remoting-cli-4.9.0.JON320GA/bin/rhq-cli.sh -u rhqadmin -p rhqadmin -f /export/scripts/import.js
More information about scheduling jobs with cron is available in the crontab manpage.
