ProcedureHow to Run ASET Periodically

  1. Become superuser or assume an equivalent role.

    Roles contain authorizations and privileged commands. For more information about roles, see Configuring RBAC (Task Map).

  2. If necessary, set up the time when you want ASET to run periodically.

    You should have ASET run when system demand is light. The PERIODIC_SCHEDULE environment variable in the /usr/aset/asetenv file is used to set up the time for ASET to run periodically. By default, the time is set for every day at midnight.

    If you want to set up a different time, edit the PERIODIC_SCHEDULE variable in the /usr/aset/asetenv file. For detailed information about setting the PERIODIC_SCHEDULE variable, see PERIODIC_SCHEDULE Environment Variable.

  3. Add an entry to the crontab file by using the aset command.

    # /usr/aset/aset -p

    The -p option inserts a line in the crontab file that starts ASET running at the time determined by the PERIODIC_SCHEDULE environment variable in the /usr/aset/asetenv file.

  4. Display the crontab entry to verify when ASET is scheduled to run.

    # crontab -l root
