Subject: [gentoo-user] Recommendations for scheduler
Date: Fri, 01 Aug 2014 17:33:35
1 Hi,
3 Up-front disclaimer: Mostly [OT] post. But at least I'll test drive it
4 on Gentoo before putting it in production :-)
6 New job, new environment. Existing persons suffer from
7 5-year-old-with-a-hammer syndrome and assume cron is the solution to all
8 ills. Result: a towering edifice of cron jobs that may or may not
9 clobber each other's work, may or may not work at all, and implement no
10 error handling at all. But my god, can they spew out mail from STOUT
13 But cron has only one event trigger: wall-clock time. And it's a very
14 blunt weapon. I'm looking for recommendations of alternative schedulers
15 that satisfy real-world business needs that need some other event
16 trigger than what the time is right now.
18 For those familiar with it, I'm looking for something with the useful
19 feature set, without the useless features and without the price tag of
20 ControlM
22 Anyone care to share experiences?
