How monitoring works?

When you create a new monitor in cronbuzz, The monitor status will be turned to NEW and you will be given two unique ping urls.

Your cron job or scheduled task should ping the first url at the beginning of your script and the next url at the end of the script.

You will also be provided with a ping url to report cron job failures. Please follow our detailed installation instructions.

Once your cron job starts sending us pings, We will start monitoring the pings and notify you if we did not receive a ping as per schedule, or your cron job reports failure.

How cronbuzz sends alerts?

Cronbuzz currently sends alerts via email, slack, discord, pagerduty, opsgenie, victorops and webhooks.
