ZCS Cron Jobs
You can view the ZCS crontab by logging on as zimbra and typing crontab -l.
The following cron jobs are scheduled to run for ZCS
Log pruning
The log pruning deletes logs from /opt/zimbra/log that are over eight days old. The job runs at 2:30 a.m.
Status logging
zmstatuslog calls zmcontrol status and outputs it data into syslog.
This is primarily so that logger can read the data and keep the administration
console status up-to-date.
Status logging job runs every 2 minutes.

Full and increment backups are scheduled to run according to the schedule defined by zmschedulebackup command. By default the full backup is scheduled for 1:00 a.m., every Saturday. The incremental backups are scheduled for 1:00 a.m., Sunday through Friday.
By default, backups older then a month are deleted on the first of each month at 12 a.m.
