I needed to add a script for performance from /etc/crontab with running from root. But it failed. /etc/crontab read by cron, it was seen in /var/log/cron, but the scheduled task was not run.
It is necessary to add string in /etc/crontab
It is necessary to add CR (press Enter) in the end of last string. After this doing cron will be to see change a /etc/crontab
