Ruby on rails - Static method

I want a method to be executed every 5 minutes, I implemented whenever for ruby (cron). But it does not work. I think my method is not accessible.
The method I want to execute is located in a class. I think I have to make that method static so I can access it with

MyClass.MyMethod
. But I can not find the right syntax or maybe I am looking in the wrong place.

Schedule.rb

every 5.minutes do
runner "Ping.checkPings"
end


Ping.rb

def checkPings
gate = Net::Ping::External.new("10.10.1.1")
@monitor_ping = Ping.new()

if gate.ping?
MonitorPing.WAN = true
else
MonitorPing.WAN = false
end

@monitor_ping.save
end

Answer

To declare a static method, write ...

def self.checkPings
  # A static method
end

... or ...

class Myclass extend self

  def checkPings
    # Its static method
  end

end
