PostgreSQL and Greenplum job scheduler pg_task allows to execute any sql command at any specific time at background asynchronously

first conf shared_preload_libraries = 'pg_task' # add pg_task to shared_preload_libraries second sql INSERT INTO task (input) VALUES ('SELECT now()'); -- to run sql more quickly use only input INSERT INTO task (plan, input) VALUES (now() + '5 min':INTERVAL, 'SELECT now()'); -- to run sql after 5 minutes point plan(ned time) INSERT INTO task (plan, input) VALUES ('2029-07-01 12:51:00', 'SELECT now()'); -- to run sql at specific time point it as plan(ned time) INSERT INTO task (repeat, input) VALUES ('5 min', 'SELECT now()'); -- to repeat sql every 5 minutes point repeat( interval) INSERT INTO task (input) VALUES ('SELECT 1/0'); -- exception is catched and writed in error as text INSERT INTO task (group, max, input) VALUES ('group', 1, 'SELECT now()'); -- if some group needs concurently run only 2 parallel sqls then use max = 1 INSERT INTO task (group, max, input) VALUES ('group', 2, 'SELECT now()'); -- if in this group there are more sqls and they are executing concurently by 2 then passing max = 2 will execute sql as more early in this group (it is like priority) INSERT INTO task (input, remote) VALUES ('SELECT now()', 'user=user host=host'); -- to run sql on remote database use remote

pg_task creates folowing GUCs

pg_task creates table with folowing columns

but you may add any needed colums and/or make partitions

by default pg_task runs on default database with default user with default schema with default table with default sleep

to run specific database and/or specific user and/or specific schema and/or specific table and/or specific sleep, set config (in json format) conf pg_task.json = '[{"data":"database1"},{"data":"database2","user":"username2"},{"data":"database3","schema":"schema3"},{"data":"database4","table":"table4"},{"data":"database5","sleep":100}]'

if database and/or user and/or schema and/or table does not exist then pg_task create it/their
