If you have tried absolute path names or setting
the environment variable PATH ( for the cron job ),
and it still doesn't work, then check this:
- Is the cron job running as the same user as when you
are on line ( what about permissions ) ??
- Is the time stamping ( to RRD ) different when cron
is running the job ??
- Have you checked the cron-users unix-mail ( through
the command "mail" ) ?? Any output ( like error messages )
that is not redirected elsewhere will be sent as unix
mail to the owner ( unix-user ) of the cron job.
