The monit 3.0 beta is available from:


This is a stable beta, and we ask that as many as possible on this
mailing list helps us in testing this beta. PLEASE REPORT BACK ANY
WORKS ON YOUR SYSTEM. We have tested on Linux, Solaris and FreeBSD
(Rory has worked to ensured that monit now actually works on FreeBSD.)

Excerpt from the CHANGE LOG:

Version 3.0

*  A new feature to check and utilize systems and process information
   is introduced with this release. With this feature you can get an
   alert or monit will stop or restart programs based on their process
   characteristic. E.g. if a process is using to much memory you can
   get an alert, or if a process is using to much CPU monit can auto-
   matically restart the program. Please have a look in the document-
   ation to learn more about this new feature.

*  This release also augment the web interface and console status
   command to display for each process the uptime, cpu usage and
   memory usage.

*  To protect the security of your control file and passwords the
   control file must have permissions no more than 0700 (u=xrw,g=,o=);
   monit will complain and exit otherwise.

*  This release support up to 64 arguments for the start and stop
   programs. Previous versions supported only 2 arguments.

*  If monit fails to execute a start or stop program, monit will now
   send an alert message. Previously, monit only logged a message if
   it failed to execute a program.

*  This release makes use of autoheader and config.h. Thanks to Mark
   Ferlatte <address@hidden>.
