Subject [jira] [Resolved] (INFRA-10542) Puppet created cron jobs are flooding with email
Date Fri, 11 Mar 2016 22:41:27 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-10542?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Geoffrey Corey resolved INFRA-10542.
    Resolution: Fixed

The kernel cleaning script has been fixed. For any others in puppet, set the environment portion
to 'MAILTO=""' and it will make it that cron will not be emailed out.

> Cron jobs from puppet are spewing mail, and ENOCARE. 
> Email is also a poor mechanism to let us know that something is wrong, esp when it is
something that sends a dozen emails every night, if we need monitoring/alerting, lets do that
in something that we will actually pay attention to rather than something we ignore. 
> In example, look for this subject for messages: 
> Cron <root@mysql1-us-mid> /root/purge_old_kernels -y
