Clockworkd overview

Cron is non-ideal for running scheduled application tasks, especially in an app deployed to multiple machines(http://adam.heroku.com/past/2010/4/13/rethinking_cron/). Clockworkd is a cron replacement. It runs as a lightweight, long-running Ruby process which sits alongside your web processes (Mongrel/Thin) and your worker processes (DJ/Resque/Minion/Stalker) to schedule recurring work at particular times or dates. For example, refreshing feeds on an hourly basis, or send reminder emails on a nightly basis, or generating invoices once a month on the 1st.
