I am having issues with AOE Scheduler on Magento 18.104.22.168. After scheduling tasks through the extension, it does not seem to executive them at all. However if I directly run the task using "Run Now", it will work. It confuses me because I have a cron job setup on the server to run every 15 minutes. Yet, whatever task I "Run Now" via the extension, it runs it right away, totally disregarding the cron job time frame I have set on the server.
The whole reason I installed the extension was because cron is using 85% to 100% of the CPU and isn't stopping. My host actually had to disable cron.php to get it to stop. I'm thinking it's a bug in 22.214.171.124 because I didn't change anything and this all started after upgrading to 126.96.36.199 from 188.8.131.52.
Since installing the extension, the cron job I have setup on the server will not run (even though it's set to run every 15 minutes) unless I manually execute it by going to my browser and typing it's path directly in the address bar. However, if I do that, I go back to the same issue with CPU usage and cron not stopping.
I like that AOE Scheduler will run jobs (like sending email) on it's own (possibly outside of cron.php), but is there any way to have the schedule actually follow through and work on the extension?
