Hybris Cron Jobs Test

The cronjob functionality is used for executing tasks, called cron jobs, regularly at a certain point of time. Cron jobs are used for creating data for backups, updating catalog contents, recalculating prices etc.

The key idea of applying cron jobs is to start a long or periodic process in the background, with the possibility to log each run and to easily check its result.

This test monitors currently running Cron Jobs, if there is an issue with any Cron Job, it is indicated by status code.

Target of the test : A SAP Hybris system being monitored

Agent deploying the test : An internal/remote agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for SAP Hybris Cron Jobs being monitored

Configurable parameters for the test
Parameter Description

Test Period

How often should the test be executed


The host for which the test is to be configured.


Specify the port at which the specified host listens. By default, this is 9002.

JMX Remote Port

Specify the port at which the JMX listens for requests from remote hosts. Ensure that you specify the JMX remote port number of the SAP Hybris monitoring application. The default is 12002.


The JNDIname is a lookup name for connecting to the JMX connector. By default, this is jmxrmi. If you have registered the JMX connector in the RMI registry using a different lookup name, then you can change this default value to reflect the same.

JMX User and JMX Password

If JMX requires authentication only (but no security), then ensure that the user and password parameters are configured with the credentials of a user with read-write access to JMX.

Confirm Password

Confirm the password by retyping it here.


This test uses a JMX Provider to access the MBean attributes of the target Java application and collect metrics. Specify the Provider as value “default”.


Specify the duration (in seconds) for which this test should wait for a response from the target Java application. If there is no response from the target beyond the configured duration, the test will timeout. By default, this is set to 1000 seconds if the Mode is JMX

Detailed Diagnosis

To make diagnosis more efficient and accurate, the eG Enterprise embeds an optional detailed diagnostic capability. With this capability, the eG agents can be configured to run detailed, more elaborate tests as and when specific problems are detected. To enable the detailed diagnosis capability of this test for a particular server, choose the On option. To disable the capability, click on the Off option.

The option to selectively enable/disable the detailed diagnosis capability will be available only if the following conditions are fulfilled:

  • The eG manager license should allow the detailed diagnosis capability
  • Both the normal and abnormal frequencies configured for the detailed diagnosis measures should not be 0.

Measures made by the test
Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation

Cron Jobs Running

This measure indicates the number of currently running Cron Jobs.


This measure indicates the number of cron jobs running currently. The Detailed Diagnosis of this measure if enabled, reveals the list of cron job codes separated by comma along with start time when cron jobs will be executed.
