FastCron Changelog

June 2024

Change retrying failed cronjobs

Failed then disabled cronjobs will no longer be retried and enabled.

  • The default failure threshold is 20 consecutive failures.
  • You can update it at the section Failures, retry, and repeat.
  • When your cronjob fails half of the threshold, we will back off:
    • 1 day if your cronjob runs 4 times a day or less
    • 3 hours if your cronjob runs 24 times a day or less
    • 1 hour otherwise
  • When the cronjob exceeds the failure threshold, it will be disabled.
  • You will receive a cron notification (via email, Slack, or webhook) when that happened.
