comment Techniques to Monitor cron tasks?
While I like everyone's answers - I learned a lot - I completely forgot about our Nagios monitoring. This is great for those long running tasks, what I'm really concerned about. Thanks.

Thanks for the answer -> I'm a programmer, which makes me a bit of a sysadmin newbie. I wasn't even aware of the network capabilities of syslog.
