This is one of the great Magento extensions out there. I use it every day to test and run cron jobs. It's so useful that by default it's on every site I work on. If you use an IDE and debugger to develop, you can even set breakpoints, run a job, hit your breakpoints and step through code. There's also a shell script that you can use to run jobs. Overall, this is one of the extensions that makes Magento a mature platform.

Found a bug
in class class Aoe_Scheduler_Model_Observer extends Mage_Cron_Model_Observer .....XML_PATH_SCHEDULE_LIFETIME is not defined by which it always take value "0" on converting to date shows 1970-01-01 12:30:00 ...
It was always sending me error "00 Too late for the schedule" due to not correct time calculation
Fix : we need to add
const XML_PATH_SCHEDULE_LIFETIME = 'system/cron/schedule_lifetime';
to make it pick value from core_config_data table from "system/cron/schedule_lifetime" entry.

Fantastic!! why isin't this included out of the box??
Performs as advertised, came across this when troubleshooting performance issues with my site.
In the short time I've been using this, the only thing that keeps coming to mind is: Why wasn't something like this included in the default package!?
You can easily manage all your cron's, run them on the fly and have a history.
Cannot comment on contacting the developer because I didn't need to.
NOTE: If the module isn't appearing in your back end, log off, flush your cache, (APC, MEMCACHED) and off you go.
Thanks to the developer for this little but powerful module!

It shows an error on Magento 22.214.171.124
I installed it just fine, but when I click on the Scheduler submenu then this error shows:
Fatal error: Class 'Aoe_Scheduler_Helper_Data' not found in ***/public_html/app/Mage.php on line 546
Any idea what could be wrong?

After update to 1.7 it doesn't work
After we've updated Magento to 1.7 this module doesn't work anymore.
When I get to the page in the backend I got a blank page. If I use Developer Tools by Google Chrome I see an 500 error..
Anyone an idea what I can do to fix this?
Before the update it worked perfectly!

As a magento developer, I steer clear of Magento modules due to their poor quality of build, but this one has really proven to be an integral part of my swiss knife.
Has many useful tools such as run or stop a cron job, disable, view timeline etc. Recommended for a good cron management.

Solved my cron problems
I had problems with the cron job on two magento installations. Running the cron via wget didn't work. The same wget command from the terminal did work for one installation. For the other nothing worked.
Installing this installation solved all my problems. I didn't do anything else. The cron job was already working, but had until now no effect.
At first I tried to install the extension manually, but that didn't work. I had to do this via the extension manager. If you tried manual installation you have to go through all folders to remove all Aoe files, otherwise it won't install.
