crono - A time-based background job scheduler daemon (just like Cron) for Rails

  •        74

Crono is a time-based background job scheduler daemon (just like Cron) for Ruby on Rails. Currently, there is no such thing as Ruby Cron for Rails. Well, there's Whenever but it works on top of Unix Cron, so you can't manage it from Ruby. Crono is pure Ruby. It doesn't use Unix Cron and other platform-dependent things. So you can use it on all platforms supported by Ruby. It persists job states to your database using Active Record. You have full control of jobs performing process. It's Ruby, so you can understand and modify it to fit your needs.

node-cron - Cron for NodeJS.

  •    Javascript

Cron is a tool that allows you to execute something on a schedule. This is typically done using the cron syntax. We allow you to execute a function whenever your scheduled job triggers. We also allow you to execute a job external to the javascript process using child_process. Additionally, this library goes beyond the basic cron syntax and allows you to supply a Date object. This will be used as the trigger for your callback. Cron syntax is still an acceptable CronTime format. Although the Cron patterns supported here extend on the standard Unix format to support seconds digits, leaving it off will default to 0 and match the Unix behavior. Because we can't magically know what you are doing to expose an issue, it is best if you provide a snippet of code. This snippet need not include your secret sauce, but it must replicate the issue you are describing. The issues that get closed without resolution tend to be the ones without code examples. Thanks.

chronos - Fault tolerant job scheduler for Mesos which handles dependencies and ISO8601 based schedules

  •    Scala

Chronos is a replacement for cron. It is a distributed and fault-tolerant scheduler that runs on top of Apache Mesos that can be used for job orchestration. It supports custom Mesos executors as well as the default command executor. Thus by default, Chronos executes sh (on most systems bash) scripts. Chronos can be used to interact with systems such as Hadoop (incl. EMR), even if the Mesos agents on which execution happens do not have Hadoop installed. Included wrapper scripts allow transfering files and executing them on a remote machine in the background and using asynchronous callbacks to notify Chronos of job completion or failures. Chronos is also natively able to schedule jobs that run inside Docker containers.

Rundeck - Job Scheduler and Runbook Automation

  •    Groovy

Rundeck is an open source automation service with a web console, command line tools and a WebAPI. It lets you easily run automation tasks across a set of nodes. It can schedule a job, more secure replacement of cron. It provides support for runbook automation where it can execute common set of reusable procedures.

minicron - 👨🏻‍💻 Monitor your cron jobs

  •    Ruby

pg_cron - Run periodic jobs in PostgreSQL

  •    C

pg_cron can run multiple jobs in parallel, but it runs at most one instance of a job at a time. If a second run is supposed to start before the first one finishes, then the second run is queued and started as soon as the first run completes. An easy way to create a cron schedule is: crontab.guru.

dagobah - Simple DAG-based job scheduler in Python

  •    CSS

Dagobah is a simple dependency-based job scheduler written in Python. Dagobah allows you to schedule periodic jobs using Cron syntax. Each job then kicks off a series of tasks (subprocesses) in an order defined by a dependency graph you can easily draw with click-and-drag in the web interface. Dagobah lets you retry individual tasks from failure, sends you helpful email reports on job completion and failure, keeps track of your tasks' stdout and stderr, and persists its information in various backends so you don't have to worry about losing your data.

Bistro - Flexible distributed scheduler, a high-performance framework supporting multiple paradigms while retaining ease of configuration, management, and monitoring

  •    C++

Bistro is a toolkit for making services that schedule and execute tasks. Bistro is a toolkit for making distributed computation systems. It can schedule and run distributed tasks, including data-parallel jobs. It enforces resource constraints for worker hosts and data-access bottlenecks. It supports remote worker pools, low-latency batch scheduling, dynamic shards, and a variety of other possibilities. It has command-line and web UIs.

Aoe_Scheduler - Cron Scheduler Module for Magento

  •    PHP

AOE Scheduler sits on top of Magento's default cron functionality allowing you to manage the jobs, to visualize the timeline and to get some deeper insight on what's going on behind the scenes and to shed some light on what might be going wrong. On top of that AOE Scheduler provides some more functionality like a cli and a web service interface, optimizing cron execution on your server and giving you everything you need to implement complex background tasks including for your Magento store. This documentation is currently being written. Sadly, at this point it's still more an outline and some bullet points than a complete documentation. I'm working on it. If you have any comments feel free to get in touch with me.

sparrow - Sparrow scheduling platform (U.C. Berkeley).

  •    Python

Sparrow is a high throughput, low latency, and fault-tolerant distributed cluster scheduler. Sparrow is designed for applications that require resource allocations frequently for very short jobs, such as analytics frameworks. Sparrow schedules from a distributed set of schedulers that maintain no shared state. Instead, to schedule a job, a scheduler obtains intantaneous load information by sending probes to a subset of worker machines. The scheduler places the job's tasks on the least loaded of the probed workers. This technique allows Sparrow to schedule in milliseconds, two orders of magnitude faster than existing approaches. Sparrow also handles failures: if a scheduler fails, a client simply directs scheduling requests to an alternate scheduler. To read more about Sparrow, check out our paper.
