#9016: Possibility to disable wp-cron
 Reporter:  erunafailaro     |       Owner:  anonymous

 Priority:  normal           |   Milestone:  2.7.1    
Component:  General          |     Version:           
 Severity:  normal           |    Keywords:  wp-cron  
 Sometime when I edit an older page or article and save the changes,
 spawn_cron() from /wp-includes/cron.php is invoked more than 200 times a
 second for a few minutes and consequently also calls /wp-cron.php > 200

 Everytime when this happens, my server goes down to its knees and my
 provider will take my host offline.

 As my provider offers operating-system-cron-jobs, I would like to replace
 wp-cron with an OS-cron-job that will invoke /wp-cron.php once a minute.

 Could you please add an option to the wp-settings that will disable wp-
 cron so that the file /wp-cron.php could be invoked by e.g. an OS-cronjob?
