Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am running a large number of servers that crash periodically because cron jobs have been managed badly - essentially there are cron jobs that run (for example) very frequently and/or produce high loads on each server. I would like to be able to move jobs around (in terms of time and in terms of server) so that load is managed better. Has anyone come across a good tool that will show (visually, ideally) the effects of cronjobs on a server?

Many thanks for your help.
