It would be nice if DBA's or DB Owners had the ability
to create/ammend/delete a scheduled task or job for
each database (or server wide).


# Initiate a task as soon as the engine is started.
# Initiate a task during idle CPU time.
# Create a one off task for execution on a specified
# Create Recurring tasks.
# Initiate a task when a user connects/disconnects
from a database.
# Ability to disable/enable tasks.
# Ability to backup a database.

This is a follow on from this proposal on architect

The implementation of this feature would require a complex infrastructure (i.e. Server/Database manager) which would a list of registered databases, which be responsible for ensuring that the databases are opened/active on a 24 hour basis. The functionality could then also include features like server health monitoring, health dashboard and/or email notifications.

This would add complexity to the current install/deployment process, which may not be required for all installations.

This should be taken up as a separate module (like Guardian), it should not be considered part of the engine itself.

Sounds like database and application servers confusion to me.
Couldn't FB3 plugin architecture be a simple host for such add-on features?
