This is a story of snaked: pure Perl cron replacement developed and used in the sysadmin department of the biggest Russian Internet company in wild production (tens of thousands of servers) for last 3 years roughly, presented by its author.

I will go through a bunch of sysadmin tasks which brought this program to life.

I will give some insights of previous production solutions used throughout the history of the company and will show how they finally transformed into what company has now.

Finally I will give top level overview of how snaked functions, how to configure it and advantages of its configuration format over classic cron configuration.
