Are you running cronjob.php or.sh... in both cases you could edit the files and let it send a email to you when it runs.

A second solution would be to try out this amazing extension giving you the best insight in the health, quality and possible issues with you cronjobs.

This extensions shows you the schedule of you cronjob and gives you insight if it runs and how long tasks take and which tasks have run.


Hope this helps. Cheers!


Have an observer that will insert a row into a table of your DB that shows the exact time that a certain cron is scheduled to run, then when that cron is ran have that same observer update that row to show that it is executed, then when it is complete once again update the row. if there is an error, log that error within your DB.

This will allow you to easily access and view and past - present - and future cron tasks in one place! Email is too distributed.
