It's not entirely clear what you are asking, but I think you need to read this http://www.adminschoice.com/docs/cro...Crontab%20file.
Basically, you need to understand what each time component in the cmd is for. Then you can predict when it will run.
Normally you'd do this before creating the cronjob...
