cronbot is a wrapper script for cron jobs. Rather than running your job/script directly, you run it through cronbot, and it will allow a little more control to help keep things from getting out of hand. The default behavior is to only allow one instance of your job to run. This can be changed with the --duplicate option. You can also pass in a maximum time of execution for a job or add a random amount time to delay the start of your job. By default, jobs are run with a default "nice" value, which is usually 10.

izBalancing is a bash script featuring an in/out multi-homed load-balanced Internet gateway traffic manager with a failover facility. It features multiple balanced default gateway configurations, load-balanced outgoing connections from LAN to Internet connections, and management of multiple incoming connections from many Internet ISP lines to DMZ/LAN Servers. It is a SystemV compliant script, and can be easily run at boot. It will automatically discover your local IP addresses. You can cleanly start and stop your multi-homed configuration with a simple command (izbalancing start|stop|restart). Adding new Internet connections is very fast and easy: you need only provide the interface name, router IP address, and a descriptive name. If the izping daemon is installed into /etc/rc.d/init.d/, it will be used for automatic failover and recovery of Internet lines.
