I think both solutions are very nice :)

Thanks for the patch, i will look on it. Similar feature is planned for some future release (see and your patch solves one part of the task.

... and the described trick is probably the most avanced monit configuration i ever saw :)

That's a good system. I considered something similar myself at first,
I.e. writing some sort of count to a file at every restart and
periodically checking/clearing it. However it's obviously much better to
have this functionality built-in to monit. Is there any way we can put
this patch up for argument on the developer's list? I'd definitely like
to see something similar in the CVS.

Perhaps I should make a diff against the development version (rather
than stable.) It would also be good to get some people testing this to
make sure it works properly.

Basically whenever I start apache using the apachectl script I also
add a byte to a temp file (echo >> /tmp/apache_restart), then I use
another test in monit to check this temp file and exec "reboot" when
it reach a given size (10 bytes would mean 10 restart). However I've
also got another check that deletes the file is the timestamp if over
a given period.
