I'm looking for better solution to handling our cron tasks in a load balanced environment.

Currently have:

  • PHP application running on 3 CentOS servers behind a load balancer.
  • Tasks that need to be run periodically but only on a single machine at a time.
  • Good old cron set up to run those tasks on the first server.
  • Problems if the first server is out of play for whatever reason.

Looking for:

  • Something more robust and de-centralized.
  • Load balancing the tasks so multiple tasks would run only once but on random/different servers to spread the load.
  • Preventing not having the tasks run when the first server goes down.
  • Being able to manage tasks and see aggregate reports ideally using a web interface.
  • Notifications if anything goes wrong.

The solution doesn't need to be implemented in PHP but it would be nice as it would allow us to easily tweak it if needed.

I have found two projects that look promissing. GNUBatch and Job Scheduler. Will most likely further test both but I wonder if someone has better solution for the above.

    You can use this small library that uses redis to create a temporary timed lock:

    The servers should be identical and have the same cron configuration. The server that will be first to create the lock will also execute the task. The other servers will see the lock and exit without executing anything.

    For example, in the php file that executes the scheduled task:

      'host'   => $redisHost,
      'port'   => $redisPort
    // check if a lock was already created,
    // if it was, it means that another server is already executing this task
    if (!MutexLock\Lock::set($lockKeyName, $lockTimeInSeconds)) {
    // if no lock was created, execute the scheduled task

    To run the tasks in a de-centralized way and spread the load, take a look at: It's a php port of the ruby version of resque and it stores the data in the same exact format so you can use or to monitor the workers and see reports
