Hello, can someone let me know how I can trigger a cron job everytime a record is added in one of my tables. Each time a record is added to this table a service running on my Ubuntu machine has to be given a reload command. Can someone let me know how I can do this? Thank you.

If you have multiple users accessing your MySQL db, I'd advise against using lib_mysqludf_sys, for security reasons: they don't need EXECUTE rights to execute UDF scripts.

Just use a script to search (once every few minutes) for COUNT(*) to see if you have inserts.
You can use the language of your choice for that (php, python, bash etc).

HTH,
Dan

Agree with Dan, rather than giving that task on DB, You can write a cron job which check if any new record added inside table which is not processed & then run the process..
