Still battling this issue. My latest problem is that I assumed that I
write a construct like:
if 10 restarts within 10 cycles then exec "...some command..."
However, when I try this, and check syntax (with -t option of monit),
complains about exec.
Is it true that only a "timeout" action is allowed in this construct?
Unfortunately, yes. The timeout statement was one of the first
statements added in monit and it has been left that way. When we get
around to implement this feature;
http://www.tildeslash.com/monit/doc/next.php#20 we can drop the timeout
statement altogether since it will be redundant and can be replaced
with a "if X restart within Y cycles then unmonitor". Until that day
I'm afraid you will have to live with this inconsistency.
On a general note, we are few in the project and we may not always have
time to follow up on every good suggestion. Therefor suggestions backed
up by a patch or backed up with a patch later is always very welcome
