How to view scheduled cron jobs?

Is there a way to view cron jobs in an MU setup? I am getting high CPU usuage from wp-cron and I want to see what my crons are doing.

I found this plugin below, but I am not sure how well it works in an MU setup: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/cron-view/

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Hey Basem.

    Do you get a lot of spam as well?

    To cut down on the load you could disable WP-Cron and then manually run it at server level:

    This goes into your wp-config.php

    define('DISABLE_WP_CRON', true);

    Do you use cPanel?

    You can create crons in cPanel really easily.

    If not and you are not sure then you could get your host to help you here, but something like this should work:

    30 * * * wget -q -O - http://domain.com/wp-cron.php?doing_wp_cron >/dev/null 2>&1

    The “*/30 * * *” sends the cron every 3 minutes.

    The “> /dev/null 2>&1” ensures no emails are sent out.

    There is a plugin for this, although I’d rather do it the way I mentioned above:

    Hope this helps :slight_smile:
