In Kubernetes, a CronJob creates Jobs on a predefined time schedule.
CronJob is meant for performing regular scheduled actions such as backups, report generation, and so on. One CronJob object is like one line of a crontab (cron table) file on a Unix system. It runs a job periodically on a given schedule, written in Cron format.
The table presented here shows the following information:
- Name: the name of the CronJob.

- Suspend: wether or not to suspend subsequent executions.
- Active: the number of currently running Jobs.
- Last Schedule: information of when was the last time the Job was successfully scheduled.
- Age: the date when the CronJob was lastly deployed.
