Schedule future jobs to run once, a set number of time, on a recurring, or many options in between. Scheduling API replaces CRON with an HA service that withstands node failures.
STDOUT is captured for every job and exposed via API and dashboard, and can stream to syslog or 3rd party.
Once your code is uploaded, you can queue up jobs and Iron.io handles the provisioning and execution. Iron.io solutions support a variety of methods of getting messages. Pull queues periodically ask a client to check for messages, push queues inform subscribers when a message is added, and long polling allows you to keep a connection open with a queue until a message has been added.
Job state change provides error and timeout handling, with alerting and auto-retry capabilities. Place alerts on your queues that notify your systems when they reach a certain number of messages for incorporating actions such as auto-scaling, failure detection, load-monitoring, and system health.
