Monitor Scheduled Tasks in Laravel

If you have tasks that run using Laravel’s Task Scheduling feature, you may want to monitor that these tasks ran and what output they generated.

You can currently use sendOutputTo() to log the output to a file, or emailOutputTo to email yourself the output, but what if you want to track the output in another repository, such as a database table?

I wrote a very simple package that will track your scheduled tasks in a database table. Visit the Github repository to see the code and instructions on how to install the package.



To see how to use this package, take a look at the 3 highlighted lines below.


namespace App\Console;

use Busatlic\ScheduleMonitor\MonitorsSchedule;
use Illuminate\Console\Scheduling\Schedule;
use Illuminate\Foundation\Console\Kernel as ConsoleKernel;

class Kernel extends ConsoleKernel
    use MonitorsSchedule;

     * The Artisan commands provided by your application.
     * @var array
    protected $commands = [

     * Define the application's command schedule.
     * @param  \Illuminate\Console\Scheduling\Schedule $schedule
     * @return void
    protected function schedule(Schedule $schedule)




I will take a look at updating this package to take advantage of notifications that will be available in the release of Laravel 5.3.
