Quote:Where do we usually find time on Unix

One could say that you'll never find time on Unix ... :-)

Quote:and the system load average for the last 1, 5, and 15 minutes (Though those values aren’t good metrics, see Brendan Gregg’s blog).

That's why the successor to Unix has dropped those.

Quote:Namely, init systems and service managers have tried to re-implement cron their own way and integrate timers as a type of service. Centralizing the management of timers along with services.

Which makes the behavior of "not-cronjobs" unpredictable and non-portable, which is a horrible idea.

A good article though, although it's quite Linux-centric this time, pointing a finger at its title.
