Project Description

RESTful Scheduling as a Service: Scheduled Tasks for the Cloud


Table of Contents


Here are some of the planned features for the first release:

* Easy to deploy
    - one command to acquire libraries (pip!)
    - one command worker registration
    - one command API setup
* Guaranteed task execution - no missed jobs
* Secure by default - sandboxed execution for workers
* Autoscaling - need more workers? Cloud Crony can spin them up for you
* Python 2.7+ and 3.3+ supported
* RESTful - client bindings can be in any language that can speak HTTP/JSON
* Familiar scheduling syntax - welcome back, Cron.


The following are a list of potential extensions to the scheduling service:

* Tenanted service - namespace schedules by tenant
* Scheduling profiles
    * Maximum per task runtime
    * Maximum concurrent tasks
    * Preemption allowed
* Task groups - in conjunction with profiles
    * /schedules/{group}/tasks/
    * Allow special configuration for group
* Autoscaling
* Preemptive scheduling
* Prioritized scheduling
    * Assign task priorities
    * Choose next task based on priority + dealine
* Real-time scheduling
    * Fail tasks that take too long
    * Specify task deadline as well as periodicity
        * Task deadline given relative to periodicity
* Improved security
    * Better sandboxing
* Error reporting task specification
    * error_hook: task to handle main process errors
    * similar to progress hook
    * Appends them to GET /schedules/{id} "errors" field
* Client bindings
* Backend configuration options and drivers
    * MongoDB
    * Redis
    * sqlite
    * Some sort of Cloud DB
