I have a bunch of Java programs/shellscripts that needs to be manually started every now and then (mostly in the mornings), and stopped every evening (same there). I would like a possibility to start the scripts via a web-interface. Would also like to be able to look at logs.
Can I do that with a standard Ubuntu installation, or do I need some 3rd party tools?
-- edit --
I understand that the UN*X WAY is to do this with crontab etc. Also that writing a simple controller that could start/stop processes via a web interface isnt that big of a thing.
I just wondered whether there existed some kind of process monitor framework, that could start/stop/restart processes, maybe deal with dependencies (if this process crashes, that one must be restarted). All together with a neat Web interface (together with headless control possibilities of course).
Such a tool/framework could offload a lot of basic work to "simple users".
Rundeck seems promising, but maybe I was looking for something more customizable.
