I'm loving webfaction. The coding freedom is amazing.

Yet I have to ask this question --

I designed a python program that runs django related activities on a daemon. I find it more classy than a cron job.

Are there any standards I should be considering before launching daemon processes? Or perhaps this is a silly question and its not even allowed anyway?

Ideally it just runs in the background on minimal resource use doing database checks ever 10 seconds, and then running scheduled tasks if needed.

Thank you.

You can run all of the daemon processes you want, provided that you don't thrash the CPU or exceed your quotas for RAM, storage, and bandwidth.
