Cron Job


I have created a cron. I used the crontab -e comand. Here is the actual crontab -e
* * * * * /etc/asterisk/chk_asterisk.sh >> /var/log/monitoring/cron/log.txt


here is my chk_asterisk.sh
#!/bin/sh
####################################
# Checking Asterisk Application #
#####################################

for abc in `ps -ef | grep -c asterisk` ; do
if [ "$abc" -eq 0 ] ; then

echo "The asterisk is not running" > /var/log/monitoring/asterisk/cron/down.txt
exit
fi
done


I tried invoking it manually to test the script and it worked. It created some logs from the directory specified above. Bt when I have added it use the crontab -e and inserted it on, the script fails.

Hope someone could he me on this.

Thanks.

Regards

Maybe like this:

* * * * * /etc/asterisk/./chk_asterisk.sh >> /var/log/monitoring/cron/log.txt

Re:Cron job

It is still the same. There were no logs created in teh specified locations?I guess it is not running? Do I have to edit the /etc/crontab file? How will i resolver this one. Is there ant other file that I would edit?
