      Setup

      1. Make sure the expected cron frequency is set to 60 seconds

        $ php admin/cli/cfg.php --name=expectedcronfrequency --set=60
        

      Test

      1. Run the cli script for the Check API and confirm it is OK. If it's not OK, run a couple of times the cron job ($ php admin/cli/cron.php) and re-run the CLI script for the Check API (after this, it should return OK).

        $ php admin/cli/checks.php
        OK: All 'status' checks ok
        

      2. Confirm that the shell error code was 0:

        $ echo $?
        0
        

      3. Simulate a gap of 130 seconds between two consecutive cron runs and confirm it reports a warning for tool_task_cronrunning

        $ php admin/cli/cfg.php --component=tool_task --name=lastcroninterval --set=130
        $ php admin/cli/checks.php 
        WARNING: Cron running (tool_task_cronrunning)

      4. Confirm that the shell error code was 1:

        $ echo $?
        1
        

      5. Simulate a gap of 90 seconds between two consecutive cron runs and confirm it is OK

        $ php admin/cli/cfg.php --component=tool_task --name=lastcroninterval --set=90
        $ php admin/cli/checks.php 
        OK: All 'status' checks ok

        $ echo $?
        0

    Description

      The tool_task_cronrunning check has very tight limits for checking the last cron interval and comparing it to the expected frequency. When a cron job should take 1:00 min and the last run was 1:02 min it complains that there was 1:02 between the last two runs of the cron maintenance script and it should run every 1:00.
