There are specific cases that require a greater level of control and detail in scheduling tasks. Of course this is possible with Java’s TimerTask, but the work would be a bit more arduous and perhaps even unnecessary since we already have APIs ready for such a task, as is the case with the Quartz Scheduler.

Batch files have been around since the early Windows operating system. These are plain text files with .bat|.cmd|.btm file extensions, and when executed, the commands are interpreted by the Windows command-line interface. While Microsoft released a more advanced command-line tool called PowerShell (this is not installed by default), the native windows command line remains a popular choice for scripting. Here are some tips and tricks for developers and non-technical people alike.

It’s been some time since devops and agile to walk side by side. Combining both has become the basic precept for any IT area, since that way you can get better business results. However, this union still generates much discussion. To better understand the two concepts, it is interesting to note that all of DevOps’ efforts within an organization are geared towards enabling “value delivery” to customers and businesses as quickly as possible.

It’s no use computerize your entire company and introducing a poor, slow, or difficult usability system. To effectively anticipate this type of scenario and avoid jobs and headaches for your team, APM – Application Performance Monitoring – comes as a good alternative. Through it, you can analyze how your team is using enterprise applications. With this, you can better understand whether these applications are offering problems or solutions. But the advantages do not stop there.

Easy monitoring for scheduled scripts, jobs and batches. Start monitoring your scheduled tasks in 10 minutes. It’s that easy!

PushMon is a new kind of cloud-based monitoring system. Instead of checking public facing servers on a regular basis, PushMon will wait for pings from the objects being monitored. These objects are usually batch jobs, scheduled/cron scripts, backups, or test scripts, but really are anything that has access to the internet and can call a URL on a regular basis. If PushMon does not receive the URL "ping" by the specified schedule (like every hour, or every day or even by 5:00 PM every Fri), it will send an alert (email, IM, SMS, Twitter and/or phone call).

We can monitor your database backups, your cron scripts, your background tests, your internet connectivity, your batch jobs, and a lot more. We also have an advanced but easy to use scheduling feature to alert you of problems as soon as possible.
