Moneta is a fault-tolerant, distributed task manager. It is intended to be a replacement for the traditional UNIX cron systems, allowing a scheduled execution of tasks on one or several nodes of a cluster.
It requires a Zookeeper cluster for configuration storage and cluster synchronization. Task execution reports can be stored in ElasticSearch, in a way that is easily exploitable using Kibana.
moneta --listen 127.0.0.1:3200 --nodename mynode --zookeeper zookeepernode:2181
The IP address on which Moneta listens is the one announced to other nodes, so it must be reachable by them.
More parameters are available, refer to --help.
Config files can be used instead of command line parameters, see examples in the "misc" directory.
A tutorial to setup Moneta and Zookeeper is available at doc/setup_tutorial.en.rst.
Moneta can be configured using a REST API. Any moneta node can be used to configure the whole cluster. An AngularJS/Foundation app is available to offer a nice GUI (see http://github.com/geneanet/moneta-web).
The API is documented using apiDoc markup in the code (mainly in moneta/server.py).
