Google app engine cron job scheduling setup and pricing
I want to trigger a https endpoint every 1 minute I was using cron-job.org but it is not that reliable and goes down often. I have looked at 2 options Microsoft azure scheduler and Google app engine cron scheduler. Microsoft scheduler pricing is very clear, however, I dont understand how to setup google cron job and pricing to run the cron job every minute.
To use Google's cron scheduler, you will have to pay for the app engine running 24x7. Whereas Azure Scheduler is a true microservice and you only pay based on number of jobs/job collections, not the underlying resources consumed.
Unlike Microsoft's scheduler which appears to be an independently configurable and billable service, the GAE cron service can only be a part of a GAE app. A standard environment GAE app is charged by instance-hours plus the various services it uses. See App Engine Pricing. But it also comes with fairly generous free daily quotas. A simple app which would only make a few requests per minute - like the one you describe - should have no problems staying within the free daily limits. Check the Quickstart to see how to get a basic app skeleton running. You already have the cron service doc, you only need the cron.yaml Reference to add a cron service to your app.
