I tried using putty with GREP function.. but I am not sure I have the correct syntax.. when I try running grep "xtdir_indexer.php" /var/log/cron.log I get grep: /var/log/cron.log: No such file or directory

You're not going to be able to check the cron logs on any shared hosting accounts as all accounts on the server will use the same logs. If you like, you may contact support via ticket and they will be able to provide you with any information regarding the crons running on your account.
