I am using wp_schedule_event for Insert data every 1 Minutes in a teble. But here is some confusion where i have to add code for Insert. Here is my code which add in functions.php in my theme.

register_activation_hook(__FILE__, 'my_activation');
add_action('my_hourly_event', 'do_this_hourly');
function my_activation() {
    wp_schedule_event(time(), 'minutes', 'my_hourly_event');

        global $wpdb;
       //INSERT INTO `wp_test`.`wp_options` (`option_id`, `option_name`, `option_value`, `autoload`) VALUES (NULL, 'database_options', 'hello', 'yes');

function do_this_hourly() {
     $schedules['every_three_minutes'] = array(
            'interval'  => 60,
            'display'   => __( 'Every 1 Minutes', 'textdomain' )

    return $schedules;

register_deactivation_hook(__FILE__, 'my_deactivation');
function my_deactivation() {

First you can to create a schedule for one minute, then bind function with that hook.

function add_new_intervals($schedules) 
    // add weekly and monthly intervals
    $schedules['every_single_minutes'] = array(
        'interval' => 60,
        'display' => __('Every Minute')
    return $schedules;
add_filter( 'cron_schedules', 'add_new_intervals');

// To schedule event for this minute event
wp_schedule_event( current_time( 'timestamp' ), 'every_single_minutes', 'my_every_minute_event');

//add_action('my_every_minute_event', '_Func_to_execute_');

check this quick reference for details



your cron must be register at the plugin or theme activation. Try wp crontol plugin to verify and run your cron task. But, i think you call "minutes" interval where you might call "every_three_minutes" interval for the schedule event.
