Cloud Foundry How Tos - Background Tasks / Processes

Cloud Foundry supports running background processes, for example data crunching. Those background processes are normal Cloud Foundry apps, but without a route. Therefore, it is necessary to use the --no-route parameter for pushing applications or set this as an attribute in your manifest.yml.


If you forget to disable the route, Cloud Foundry is going to perform periodically health checks that will fail. Due to this failing health checks the Cloud Controller is going to stop your application.
