Introduction Dkron nodes can work in two modes, agents or servers. A Dkron agent is a cluster member that can handle job executions, run your scripts and return the resulting output to the server. A Dkron server is also a cluster member that send job execution queries to agents or other servers, so servers can execute jobs too. The main distinction is that servers order job executions, can be used to schedule jobs, handles data storage and participate on leader election.
Configuration sources Settings can be specified in three ways (in order of precedence): Command line arguments.
