Cron Job Monitoring helps you monitor whether periodical scripts are being executed successfully. Instead of calling and testing your server, your server will ping Semonto frequently. If we don't receive a pulse in time, we will send you a notification. Simple and efficient. Ideal for database servers.Try it for free
Maybe your server is behind a firewall or has no active or exposed webserver, which makes traditional monitoring impossible. Then nobody will know if something goes wrong. Our Cron Job Monitoring turns the process around. Instead of monitoring incidents, we monitor the lack of activity. If we do not receive timely proof of life, you get alerted. This way, you can detect silent failure that would otherwise remain unnoticed. You can fix the issue before it can turn into a problem.
Create a pulse check in Semonto Supervisor. For each pulse check, Semonto generates a unique URL that your server or script needs to call.
Make sure your server or periodical script pings Semonto on time, by calling the URL. Once Semonto has received the first pulse of your server, Cron Job Monitoring is activated. If Semonto does not receive a pulse before the given timeout, we will alert you.
You can now rest assured that tasks are being performed, scripts are running and backups are being made. If not, you would have heard by now. So relax and enjoy the peace of mind.
Cron Job Monitoring is easy to configure in Semonto. Just set the duration of the time-out and define how you would like to be alerted, and Semonto will generate a URL for your script to call.
In order to deliver high reliability and reduce latency, we provide multiple servers at different locations to monitor your cronjobs and offer you the best service.
Semonto shows you from which IP address the last pulse has been sent. This can be useful to retrieve the IP address of a device when it has unexpectedly changed.
Choose whether you want to receive alerts via email, push notification, text message, Slack or a voice call. We also have webhooks available, so you can integrate the alerts into your current workflow.
