Eden Prairie, MN (PRWEB) September 22, 2011
Skybot Software, a Help/Systems, LLC company, announces the addition of a cron import tool to Skybot Scheduler™, the fast, affordable, and easy-to-use enterprise scheduling and workload automation solution for Windows, UNIX, and Linux servers.
The cron import tool lets users import their crontabs into Skybot Scheduler and immediately access all of Skybot Scheduler’s advanced scheduling and central monitoring features. Instead of logging in to individual servers to check the status of cron jobs, users can manage their entire enterprise from any web browser.
With Skybot Scheduler, cron users will be able to build event-driven schedules with cross-system reactivity. They can create calendars and specify each day a job should run—or not run. For cron jobs that need to run in a specific order, Skybot Scheduler lets users set up reactive jobs with any number of prerequisites, such as job statuses or agent events. If cron users have the same job running on multiple systems, they can use Skybot Scheduler’s Agent Groups to assign one job to multiple systems. This saves time by not having to update multiple jobs that run the same commands.
Cron users will enjoy Skybot Scheduler’s built-in notification to keep cron jobs running on time without constant monitoring. Skybot Scheduler automatically notifies users if cron jobs are running too long, completing too quickly, or not running at all. Cron users can choose to end the job, send an email to an operator, or send an SNMP trap to open a problem ticket.
Skybot Scheduler makes it easy to view detailed history and generate reports for auditing and compliance regulations. For the first time, cron users will be able to see who creates a new job and track changes to job set up and commands.
Skybot Scheduler provides tools to manage tasks and processes across multiple platforms and applications. Skybot Software is continually adding new features and enhancing existing functionality for Skybot Scheduler. Other recently added features include Schedule Activity Monitor, Agent Groups, and Agent Time Zone Support.
