log cron job to capture errors if there are

Hi all,

below is what I have in my cron job:

export SDEHOME

sdeversion -o compress -i esri_sde_3 -u sde -p sde

my question is if you run the above command mannualy, you will know whether if it run successfully or not, another word, it will post the run on your screen.

My question is if I put this job into a cron job, how am I suppose to know if it's ran or not, is there any log file or something I can go by so I can check.

Perhaps you could redirect the output of your command to a text file; then, when you want to read the output, just read the file?

i.e. sdeversion -o compress -i esri_sde_3 -u sde -p sde >> output.txt
