TaskForrest

  •        8965

Taskforest is a simple but expressive open-source job scheduler that allows you to chain jobs/tasks and create time dependencies. It uses text config files to specify task dependencies. It has built-in RESTful web service. Its key features include:

  • Schedule jobs to run at predetermined times
  • Have jobs be dependent on each other
  • Put jobs on hold, and release them
  • Automatically rerun jobs that fail
  • Receive custom emails when jobs fail, are retried, or succeed
  • Check the status of all jobs scheduled to run today
  • Interact with the included web service using your own client code
  • Interact with the included web server using your default browser
  • Browse job log files using the included web server

Job Scheduler


The Job Scheduler is used for automation - for example, process automation using the free database systems MySQL, PostgreSQL or Firebird or using SQL Server, Oracle or DB2. You can use the Job Scheduler to launch executable files and shell scripts and to run database procedures automatically. Jobs are configurable as Web Services providing interoperability with enterprise applications.

Superscheduler


Super Scheduler is a full-featured task scheduler for all system and application job scheduling. Super Scheduler is the twin software of Super Watchdog, which is event-action task scheduler for event monitoring.

evQueue - Job scheduler and queueing engine


evQueue is an open source job scheduler and queueing engine. It features an event-driven C++ engine and a PHP / MySQL web control interface which provides tasks monitoring and creation. It provides both simple task execution and complex task chaining (workflow) using an easy to use drag & drop web interface. Workflow description includes output linking to input, conditions, loops... Queues management provides an easy way for task parallelization and resource control.

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


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.

OddJob


Oddjob is a free open source Java job scheduler. Oddjob provides 'no programming required' scheduling with a business orientated approach that brings control back to the user. Oddjob Explorer allows the user to monitor and control a job any where on the network with an intuitive visual interface.


Quartz


Quartz is a full-featured, open source job scheduling service that can be integrated with, or used along side virtually any Java EE or Java SE application - from the smallest stand-alone application to the largest e-commerce system.

Rundeck - Job Scheduler and Runbook Automation


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.

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


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.

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


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.

Quartz.NET


Quartz.NET is a full-featured, open source job scheduling system that can be used from smallest apps to large scale enterprise systems. It is a port of very propular open source Java job scheduling framework, Quartz.

GNUBatch


GNUbatch is a job scheduler to run under Unix and GNU/Linux operating systems. It executes jobs at specified dates and times or according to dependencies or interlocks defined by the user. Schedules of jobs may be run on just one processor, or shared across several processors on a network with network-wide dependencies. Access to jobs and other facilities may be restricted to one user or several users in a group as required.

kala - Modern Job Scheduler


Kala is a simplistic, modern, and performant job scheduler written in Go. It lives in a single binary and does not have any dependencies.Kala was inspired by the desire for a simpler Chronos (developed by Airbnb). Kala is Chronos for the rest of us.

Cron4j


cron4j is a scheduler for the Java platform which is very similar to the UNIX cron daemon. With cron4j you can launch, from within your Java applications, any task you need at the right time, according to some simple rules.
