My company has a lot of scheduled jobs that do a variety of things-- move logs around, ingest and digest them, and all sorts of other things. Some of it happens hourly, some daily, and there are lots of dependencies between various tasks. We manage it all with an operational workflow tool is mostly adequate in theory, but often falls on its face in practice.
We're sort of looking for something less sucky than what we have. It seems like this should be a fairly well solved problem, and that there should be at least two good open source solutions. Free would be great, inexpensive is OK, and expensive is not an option. cron is not an option.
Anyone have a recommendation?
