On a standard Magento store, it can be hard to determine if the Magento cron is running as it should, even when the cron is properly configured. For this reason we recommend using
Aoe_Scheduler, specifically version
Enabling cron visualisation
We recommend using
Aoe_Scheduler to provide the functionality. It is extremely straightforward to install with the native MageStack module installer,
Eg. To install on www.example.com
cd /microcloud/domains/example/domains/example.com/www /microcloud/scripts_ro/module_install.sh Aoe_Scheduler
The installer will automatically refresh the configuration cache using MageRun.
Viewing cron activity
Once the module is installed and has been running for greater than 1 hour, you'll have visible statistics in the Magento admin. You can view the cron activity by visiting
Admin > System > Scheduler > Timeline View.
