Task Scheduler Monitor
The Task Scheduler Monitor works with the Windows Task Scheduler to alert you if any Scheduled Tasks fail, or change status.
This monitor is very easy to use. You can optionally have actions run when the following happen:
- If a Scheduled Task's enabled status changes (from enabled to disabled, or from disabled to enabled)
- If the Last Run Result changes. This is a useful option for Scheduled Tasks that typically don't return 0 after a run
- If the Last Run Result is not 0. Most Scheduled Tasks return 0 after a successful run, so this could alert on failed runs
The alerting rules will be applied to the checked Scheduled Tasks. Many Scheduled Tasks are managed by the operating system or by 3rd party applications, so typically you would
only monitor those which are specifically important to your business needs.
Standard Configuration Options
Like all monitors, this monitor has standard buttons on the right for Adding Actions,
setting Advanced Options and setting the Monitor Schedule.
The Task Scheduler Monitor will record the Last Run Result of the monitored tasks. A report can show the historical value of these Last Run Result values.
