I have a MySQL database table which I need to monitor for inserts, or specifically lack thereof. One of the fields in the row is a DATETIME, so I was hoping to be able to set up a cron job which would look in the table every 30 minutes and send an email if there is no new record within the last half hour. Can anyone help point the way? Thanks very much.
