Short for "cron table". Can refer to the system crontab or Magento's own cronjob management

crontab is the Unix command to manage cron tables.

Magento uses the term crontab for its own cronjob management. Example crontab configuration from Mage_Backup:

<crontab>
    <jobs>
        <system_backup>
            <run>
                <model>backup/observer::scheduledBackup</model>
            </run>
        </system_backup>
    </jobs>
</crontab>
