Ideas For Handling Rake Task Errors

I am looking for some ideas on how I can create some way of error
alerts for failed rake tasks and how some of you are handling
something like this. Basically if a rake tasks fails I would like to
have some kind of alert by email that the task did not complete. Are
there any services that your using to do something like this?
I am running these tasks via cron.

Thank You


Reading the cron(8) man page --

  ".... When executing commands, any output is mailed to the owner
   of the crontab (or to the user named in the MAILTO environment
   variable in the crontab, if such exists).

As long as what you're doing dumps errors to stdout or stderr, you
should receive an email about it :slight_smile:
