it's on the monit todo - alert only on repeated failures. 0% done. :-)

... if you want to, you can give it a stab ;)

meanwhile, a suggestion:
if .... then [repeated] alert

Here is an example: in our environment we have ca. 120 servers.

Provided there will be false alerts (let's say similarly to your example - 20 per server per day => 20 * 2 * 120 = 4800 false messages), trying to override the volume of false alerts will be overkill. The conclusion is as suggested - eliminate false alerts (otherwise the additional repeated messages will make the problem even worser).

As i explained, i think current monit behavior is appropriate and possible to use.

My vote for repeated alerts feature (at least in this form) is -1.
