Many of us are using cron jobs for scheduled tasks such as backups, emails, status checks.
Cron jobs impact the performance of your web application in many ways.
Keep a close tab on your cron jobs (no pun intended), so you can intervene timely and minimize the impact on your application and end users.
Do you always know:
CoScale gives us cross-company insight in cron job dependencies. Over time, different people had been adding cron jobs. It was hard to keep track of all these jobs. With CoScale, we get a clear overview of all background tasks and we can act if they are slowing down our business.
What counts is that your scheduled tasks run on time, and that they run successfully. CoScale watches your crons for you, so you can react to issues faster. Receive alerts when background jobs don't run timely and assess their performance impact.
Background jobs running longer than expected can impact others, especially if you have jobs scheduled close to one another. By seeing the changes over time, you can act before this causes server overload or other performance problems.
With many jobs running throughout the day it is hard to see which have the most impact on performance. With CoScale you can link performance metrics to the timing of your crons, and choose the best time to schedule them.
Deploy our lightweight server agent with a rich library of integrations to monitor all your important application components. In addition, see the impact on your end users with our browser monitoring.
Add custom metrics and events to your timeline to see performance in context. Besides cron jobs, other events can also impact performance: new deployments, marketing campaigns, etc.
Solve performance problems faster with our automatic anomaly detection. Correlate anomalies with other metrics and events to assist in triage and troubleshooting.
