Splitting updatedb into daily and weekly

Post date: April 21, 2006, 12:04 Category: System Views: 3078 Comments
Tutorial quote: We all appreciate the locate command when we are such in a hurry we cannot afford a full and in-elegant find. What we like a little less, though, is the updatedb script consuming up all our disk bandwidth at each boot, summoned by anacron.

Of course, this is only the case if you are running a "desktop" machine: since you turn it on when you need to do some work, then you long for a way to shorten the period of reduced usability forced by updatedb.

Inversely, if you run a server that never goes down, and you successfully schedule your updatedb tasks late at night, then this article is not for you.
