Cronjob for curator

I have installed ELK and the latest curator 4.0. I would like to made it regularly run with cronjob in linux.

  1. I have installed .curator at the linux home, i.e. cd~.
  2. I have typed crontab -e.
  3. I input the following statement * * * * * /.curator curator action.yml

Is this setting right? How should I check if it is running or not?

I think this is a generic answer on testing crontab instead of waiting for them to run the next time? If so there are multiple places where similar questions around crontab were asked and answered., for instance . Otherwise it is a matter of looking at your system logs to figure out whether the crontab is running successfully.
