The Fat Controller is a parallel execution handler, used to repeatedly run other programs, usually scripts, a bit like CRON. It was designed to handle the execution of scripts which perform background processing for websites which generally need to repeat, react to how much work there is to do at any one time or run as a daemon. The Fat Controller takes care of all these boring concerns so you can concentrate on your business logic.

The Fat Controller is written in C, is very stable and used to running for months or years on end without interruption. It is also under intensive, active development.
