Cluster Cron
A cron that is usable in HA failover clusters

Traditionally there are some problems running package dependent cron jobs in HA clusters. The most important problem is that when the package switches away to another node (because of an operator command or a node crash), the cron jobs installed on the "old" node must be deactivated.

Cluster cron is an adapted version of Vixie cron that allows for package dependent crons with cron configurations in the package file system. By running a cron as part of the package, the cron jobs automatically follow the package wherever it goes.

For more information, read the README.CLUSTER file.
