  2. cron

    Hi RM. I'm Greg, an installation specialist, 10 year Windows MVP, and Guardian Moderator here to help you.

    What is portable Windows 10? I have not seen it and I'm in forums daily for 10 years? Do you mean WIndows to Go which is gone now?

    To automate Cron scheduling via Task Scheduler see here:

    https://www.drupal.org/docs/7/setting-up-cron-f...

    I hope this helps. Feel free to ask back any questions and keep me posted. I will keep working with you until it's resolved.

    Running cron on WSL 2 Ubuntu constantly takes 10-12% of CPU resources

    Hi,

    Just trying to become familiarized with WSL 2, I downloaded Ubuntu from Microsoft store and it is working so far great.

    I was thinking perhaps it is more convenient to run various periodical tasks as cron job than Windows Task scheduler, (it is just not easily manageable for me, crontab notation is simpler and user friendly, I think...) but when the cron is enabled with `sudo
    service cron start` CPU resource utilization jumps around 10 to 12% and constantly using up the resource and sit there.

    I am wondering this is an expected behavior, is there a way to minimize the resource utilization?

    Any input would be highly appreciated,
