Cron limits?

October 10, 2013 1.8k views
Hi! Are there any limits in terms of duration or incoming traffic for cron jobs? I have a project that has to pull several many webpages (mostly RSS) each N minutes and when the remote servers take a long time to answer, the cronjob hangs waiting for the page. This makes a cron that usually takes 20 seconds sometimes to run for several minutes, something that is frowned upon on many hosting servers.

Mind sharing the cron with us? :)
It's fine as long as you're not generating a lot of outbound traffic that might affect other customers.
