HP-UX Scheduling Tools

Hi

I am looking to port our application to HP-UX and require a scheduling tool for our batch suite.

I am aware of CRON, but I am looking for a product that will enable me to setup schedules and dependencies through some sort of front end.

We have 100+ shell scripts that will need to be scheduled and these are fluid, hence the preference for something GUI/WEB driven that is easy to use.

Has anyone got any comments, recommendations? I am very open to suggestions and have no pre-conceptions.

Thanks alot!

Cron has frontend crontab -e
You can rewrite any *BSD cron to work without parsing crontabs and accepting only graphical input

Is there anywhere I can find the details on this function?

I have never used HP-UX and am putting together a feasibility study for us to move from VMS to HP-UX

It would be very helpful if there was some documentation on the functionality of this option, or any other tools that do the same.

Many thanks

type in "cron" or "at" and look what pretty common system is able to do in time
Maybe you look for remote job (in form of scripts) scheduling???
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.

We have 100+ shell scripts which run batch jobs written in C++

Some of these are dependent on each other and hence I need a scheduling tool...

I will give the website a look, cheers!

I did not migrate latest remaining VAXen to HP-UX, so http://www.garbled.net/clusterit.html worked fine
Simple jobs can be scheduled via cron and simple remote login.

cron doesn't handle dependencies, so you'll either have to modify your scripts to start the next job or invest in a real scheduler such as Maestro from IBM/Tivoli - http://www-306.ibm.com/software/tivoli/products/scheduler/

http://www.cmpharm.ucsf.edu/~srp/batch/systems.html  mentions a bunch of other scheduling tools.

What do you use on the VMS system? There may be an equivalent or a port for HP-UX

Having used Maestro (admittedly about 4 years ago), we found it was an absolutely clumsy crock of #$%&
