atd details

job scheduler

The atd process is a daemon that performs job scheduling. The jobs are typically one-time tasks and are scheduled at a specific time using the at or batch command. Although still available on many Linux distributions, its usage is typically lower than the cron facility.

This process is a memory clone from the related binary stored on the disk.
