I understand how to monitor long running processes with monit or god,
but I don’t understand how to monitor Cron jobs (for memory bloating
notably) since such processes
- always have different PIDs when they start
- are precisely supposed to stop when they are done, then restart when
asked (vs running all the time).
I have been looking on the web for a while, but didn’t find any simple
way. Is there a recommended “basic strategy” to monitor Cron jobs?
