How to run sh file from another sh file

I have a shell script file for monitoring my application, this script will be executed every 10 min by setting cron job.

I would like to some more script files which are related to monitoring should be executed along with master file. So I would like to include my scripts to master file. How to run those sh file from master sh file

Answer

Take a look at this. If you want to run a script you can use:

./yourscript.sh

If your script has a loop, use:

./yourscript.sh&

If you want to get the console after starting scripts and you don't want to see it's output use:

./yourscript.sh > /dev/null 2>&1 &

So, in the master file you'll have:

./yourscript1.sh > /dev/null 2>&1 &
./yourscript2.sh > /dev/null 2>&1 &
./yourscript3.sh > /dev/null 2>&1 &

They will start together.
