Really long Cron Daemon emails

    I just started getting these really long Cron Daemon emails for the last few days. I mean really long, several pages. Is this something I should be concerned about? It looks like it is doing some kind of update because it says update completed at the end but I have been getting them once a day for several days in a row no. It has a bunch of links in it to external websites with folders in them and something about spam assassin. I have not done anything with my sites in over a week so there is nothing I have changed. Here is a small snipit:

    /var/lib/spamassassin/3.003002/updates_spamassassin_org/60_adsp_override_dkim.cf
    [20130426.082559] [23790] Apr 26 08:25:59.512 [23791] dbg: extracting: /var/lib/spamassassin/3.003002/updates_spamassassin_org/60_awl.cf
    [20130426.082559] [23790] Apr 26 08:25:59.512 [23791] dbg: extracting: /var/lib/spamassassin/3.003002/updates_spamassassin_org/60_shortcircuit.cf
    [20130426.082559] [23790] Apr 26 08:25:59.513 [23791] dbg: extracting: /var/lib/spamassassin/3.003002/updates_spamassassin_org/60_whitelist.cf

    And at the end:

    => Log opened from cPanel Update (upcp) - Slave at Sun Apr 14 08:25:41 2013

    => Log closed Sun Apr 14 08:25:41 2013

    Thank you,
    Michael

    Michael,

    Anytime there's a large number of updates, or just a lot of stuff being run by cron in general, it's not unusual to get very long emails about this.

    In this case, the update was very short, and there were also some SpamAssassin updates.

    Okay, I was just wondering because I have been getting what looks like the exact same emails/update notification for several days now. Does that mean it is just a series of several updates?

    Very well could be. Can you PM me a full copy of one of the emails just so I can be sure before telling you yay or nay?
