Cron jobs in Nomad?

Is Nomad suitable for configuring and running around 2000 cron jobs? Like to run an executeable with some parameters at specicfic times, just like a cron job. each job runs for around 1-2 seconds, and will run daily.

Hi @thomas.elsgaard,

Yes, Nomad is very suitable for this kind of workload.

The Nomad job specification has a periodic block which allows you to define jobs that should run on a schedule that are expected to be short lived.

Thanks,
jrasell and the Nomad team
