Episode 127: Windows Azure Scheduler
In this episode Chris Risner and Nick Harris are joined by Kevin Lam, Principal Program Manager on the Windows Azure Scheduler. The Windows Azure Scheduler allows you to invoke actions - such as calling HTTP/S endpoints or posting a message to a storage queue - on any schedule. With Scheduler, you create jobs in the cloud that reliably call services both inside and outside of Windows Azure and run those jobs on demand, on a regularly recurring schedule, or designate them for a future date.
In this episode Kevin demonstrates how to use the Windows Azure portal to:
- Define a HTTP scheduled job that executes as a reoccuring job at a defined schedule
- View job health including completed, faulted, enabled, disabled, status and errors
- Scale between Free and Standard modes
- View response http response from job execution
- Discussion on Scheduler feature set surfaced in Portal verse API
- Use fiddler to demonstrate how to request job definition, create a job directly, provide an error action that is called after subsequent failed requests directly against the REST API
