Re: Running scheduled bash script with bosh.

Dmitriy Kalinin

I would recommend using cron for this. Have your ctl script add it to the
crontab when it's started and remove it when it stopped.

Regarding monit: we are planning to upgrade it once more ( but I would not recommend
relying on its features. eventually we will replace it with a simpler job

You could try building a new stemcell with an upgraded monit.

I am curious about what do you try to achieve by running bash script with
bosh ?

We have been working to try and run a bash script at a specified
interval with bosh. Our initial approach was to create a job and use the
“check program” feature within Monit. However, this requires Monit 5.3+
[1,2]. The version of Monit included in Stemcell is 5.2.4.

This makes us ask a couple of questions:

1- Is there a reason Monit is not being updated?
2- Is there an alternative approach that we can take besides using
“check program”?
