It is possible to use the process monitoring feature in server
monitoring to know if the crond process is running or not. The
status of the crond process is independent of the execution status
(sucess/failure) of the cron jobs.
But, to monitor an individual cron job, the feature is currently in
the development stages.
In this feature, to create a cron job monitor, it is necessary to
specify a cron job expression to get an unique ping URL. Add this
URL to the cron job and get pinged at the start and end of its
execution. You can also choose to get alerted when:
- it executes longer or lesser than the configured time
- it does not complete on time
- it does not
start on time
Please find a sample version of the cron job monitor in progress.
We will update this thread once the feature is live. Let us know for
any specific requirement from your side.
