pgBucket - A new concurrent job scheduler

Hi All,

I'm so excited to announce about my first contribution tool for postgresql. I have been working with PostgreSQL from 2011 and I'm really impressed with such a nice database.

I started few projects in last 2 years like pgHawk[A beautiful report generator for Openwatch] , pgOwlt [CUI monitoring. It is still under development, incase you are interested to see what it is, attaching the image here for you ],

pgBucket [Which I'm gonna talk about] and learned a lot and lot about PostgreSQL/Linux internals.

Using pgBucket we can schedule jobs easily and we can also maintain them using it's CLI options. We can update/insert/delete jobs at online. And here is its architecture which gives you a basic idea about how it works.

Yeah, I know there are other good job schedulers available for PostgreSQL. I haven't tested them and not comparing them with this, as I implemented it in my way.
Features are: OS/DB jobsCron style sytaxOnline job modificationsRequired cli options
