Rescheduling mlocate to run weekly instead of daily
As explained before, mlocate is a useful tool for quickly find files on the filesystem based on their name.
When you installed the mlocate, it created a daily cron job under /etc/cron.daily/ which build the database daily. However, it is quite IO intensive when you build the database, and it is not recommended to run the indexing in a production server in such high frequency...it is better to run it weekly or monthly.
E.g. To reschedule the the cron job to run weekly
# mv /etc/cron.daily/mlocate /etc/cron.weekly/
