Cron Job Scheduling in Laravel

Submitted by azazqadir - 1 month ago

When working on live systems, often there is a need of executing a periodic task on the server like for sending emails, database cleanup and generating reports. To automate these tasks I use Laravel cron jobs scheduling. Cron is the task scheduler mechanism of Unix/linux operating systems. Cron schedules tasks based on a pre-specified time period like numbers of days, weeks, months, or even a specific date and time. To achieve this, cron uses the specific configuration file called ‘crontab’, also known as ‘Cron Table’, to manage the scheduling process. Cron jobs are composed of two parts, the cron expression, and a shell command that needs to be run. Cron expression is used for setting the schedule frequency.

<?php

namespace App\Console\Commands;

use Illuminate\Console\Command;

class HourlyUpdate extends Command

{

   /**

    * The name and signature of the console command.

    *

    * @var string

    */

   protected $signature = 'command:name';



   /**

    * The console command description.

    *

    * @var string

    */

   protected $description = 'Command description';



   /**

    * Create a new command instance.

    *

    * @return void

    */

   public function __construct()

   {

       parent::__construct();

   }



   /**

    * Execute the console command.

    *

    * @return mixed

    */

   public function handle()

   {

       //

   }

}
