Job Scheduler

This is a stub, we are currently developing this module and suggestions would be welcome. So please add your feature requests tickets against the SchedulerPlugin component.


The plugin lets you set up and manage and monitor scheduled jobs. It adds the following new Admin screens to Trac:

  • Job Admin - List and lets you add, edit and delete jobs.
  • Job Status Map - Where you can see the status of the last run of all the jobs. From here you can drill down to the run view of a particular job.
  • Run View - Lists all job runs, showing you the runs status form where you can drill down to the runs log.
  • Log Admin - Clean-up logs and other tasks.

Each job run environment and schedule is specified by the version of a single configuration file - a python script - in the SCM. Therefore any changes are carefully tracked. This script is used to create the sandbox and invoke the job.

Here is an example of a job configuration.

from jobplugin import JobSpec, today

from logging import DEBUG

class MyJob(JobSpec):
    Run this script with logging in debug mode.
    Run every 45 minutes.
    Run /usr/local/etc/myscript at yesterday's date as a command argument.
    grouping="/All Jobs/Tests"
    cron="* * * 45";
    cmd ="/usr/local/etc/myscript --date=%s"; % today(-1)
    run= "runA, runB";

    def setUp(self):
    def tearDown(self):
    def runA(self): pass

    def runB(self): pass

You would check it in and make the Job record point to it.
