Scheduled programs in postgresql

Scheduled programs in postgresql

Scheduled programs in postgresql

Does anybody knows if it is possible to schedule a program in postgresql? I mean, I want to run the same sql (or script with some sqls), at the same time, every day.

Any clue?

How about a cron job?


RE: Scheduled programs in postgresql

Hi monicamariahernandez,

It would depend on which OS your running.  If your running Linux, take a look at "cron".  You would need to have crond (e.g. the cron daemon) running in memory.  If your using Linux you could do:

man cron

This would bring up the manual on cron which has a ton of options.

This should get you started.
