backupmng Every Hour in Cron?

I found (Red Hat Fedora Core 6 Server) a CRON entry for "backupmng" that has repeats at 1,16,31 and 46 minutes every hour of every day, 24/7.

It is located at:
/usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/backupmng >/dev/null 2>&1

Anyone know what this is about?

I found (Red Hat Fedora Core 6 Server)
First I hope that this server isn't running anything important - Fedora Core 6 is very very old, and unsupported. You should consider either the latest Fedora 13 or RHEL/CentOS 5.

/usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/backupmng >/dev/null 2>&1
From a quick google, this appears to be a script that initiates an automatic backup of a plesk database - if its causing issues for you, you could comment it out in the crontab (remember this will stop the backup of the database)
