Easy cron monitoring

Cronitor solves scheduled task and pipeline observability for your team with a live dashboard for your jobs and instant alerts when things go wrong.   Know when critical jobs fail or if they never start and respond more quickly to incidents.

Service and api healthchecks

Constantly monitor the uptime of your websites, APIs, and services and when there's a problem ensure you learn about it first. Create simple network availability healthchecks or build complex tests with multiple assertions.

Instant alerts

Cronitor alerts are fast because we continuously evaluate your monitoring activity. Ensure the right people are notified with easy integrations like Slack, Hipchat and PagerDuty.

How Cronitor Works

Create a new cron job monitor using your cron schedule or import your entire crontab.
Add the ping to your crontab or your script directly. Ping before and after your job to monitor duration.
~ $ crontab -l
# m h dom mon dow   command

*/15 * * * M-F / && curl

~ $
Define the rules your pings will be evaluated against. You will be given a unique ping URL.
Instrument your code with Cronitor pings. Ping both /run and /complete endpoints to monitor duration.
~ $ head
from urllib2 import urlopen

# Do Everything Here

Monitor server and API health with rich assertions against status code, response time and response body.
Cronitor will send healthchecks from America, Europe and Asia for cross-region verification of downtime.

I was finding too many cases where our cron jobs would silently fail - we sometimes would not find out for days that a job was broken. Cronitor gives our team the confidence and peace of mind that if a job is not running, we'll know about it.

Cronitor provides a simple way for us to report the general health of all of our services. The API is extremely simple to use, and integration with PagerDuty has made this a critical component of our monitoring infrastructure.

Cronitor has increased our Operations staff's efficiency and responsiveness immensely. Their modern spin on micro-monitoring represents a best-in-class solution to the age old problem of visibility.

Ethan Erchinger, Director of Operations Chime

Before we used Cronitor, we had an important cron job fail silently for over a month. We use Cronitor so that will never happen again.
