    What is this?

    Cron jobs are scheduled scripts and commands that run on your server. They are useful for running tasks such as downloading new content, cleaning up files or processing data. However, running too many at once may eat up your CPU and slow down the server.

    I created this tool to help you visualize your crontab and see where the "hot spots" are. Using this tool, you can know which jobs to reschedule to spread out the load.

    Note: this visualizer does not take execution duration into account. Spreading out long running cron jobs by a few minutes will still result in the same kind of issues.
