Cron Job heartbeat monitoring

Our Cron job monitoring is a reliable and straightforward method of tracking the health of your scheduled tasks. We utilize a callback URL, also known as a heartbeat or pingback, which is an industry-standard method.

Monitor cron job completions.

When you create a cron job definition in Ping Monk, you’ll be provided with a unique URL for that particular cron job. You can then modify your cron job in your code or on your servers to perform a quick network fetch to that unique URL. If we receive that pingback within the expected timeframe, we know that the cron job was executed correctly. However, if we don’t receive a hit on that unique URL, we know that the cron job hasn’t been executed, and we can immediately alert you. Our Cron job monitoring enables you to monitor all your important cron jobs, receive instant alerts when a cron job fails, or never starts. Setting up the monitoring is quick and straightforward, and it will only take a couple of minutes of your time.
