Same for me. I don't want OpenView to trigger errors because Monit is
not responsive...
Don't blame me but this is not so "minor" problem IMHO. If you have
first level support 24/7/365 it isn't nice to trigger them uneeded
critical alarms...

This is what OpenView already did... an this is another reason because
I can't scale Monit in a bigger environment, it is confined to minor
projects by now.
