Welcome to dcron’s documentation!

The aim of dcron is to offer cron like behaviour spanning multiple machines. The system offers a web interface to manage your jobs, and reports the health of the cluster. Everything is self contained, so you only need to start the system to have a working setup. We do however recommend that you run the system behind a reverse proxy, since there is no authentication mechanism. Please check the configuration page regarding installation, configuration and options.
