pgAgent is a maintenance scheduling service/daemon. Andreas wrote most of it some time ago, but then got sidetracked. I'm, err, re-focussing my activities at the moment, and pgAgent seemed like a good way to get back into C++ (I've been doing C# and PHP mainly for the last year or so).
Basically, pgAgent is a bit like the SQL Server Agent in SQL. You can create multi-step jobs (each step is a SQL script, later shell scripts as well), and attach them to a schedule. The service/daemon then runs the steps sequentially at the appropriate time.
