But it _is_ output - look for "processed" in /usr/sbin/periodic. If none of the scripts it spawns say anything, this is what you get back. If you _really_ want to suppress this message, you will either need to edit /usr/sbin/periodic so it doesn't say anything if none of its scripts say anything, or set up a procmail (or similar) rule to filter out the noise.
