Cron Job Monitoring

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.

Detect silent failure

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.

Get notified

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.
