WebJob downloads a program over HTTP/HTTPS and executes it in one unified operation. Output may be directed to stdout/stderr or a Web resource.
WebJob may be useful in investigating computer intrusions as it provides a mechanism to run known good diagnostic programs on a potentially compromised system.
WebJob can also support various host-based monitoring solutions. For example, suppose that you have a script that you want to run periodically on multiple hosts. On the client, this is just a matter of creating an appropriate config file, installing WebJob, and establishing a cron job. On the server, simply store the script in a common location and create links to it from the "commands" directory in each clients profile.
