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...

Ok, I understand and I can see the problem. I have added this as a task that we need to fix in the next release of monit. See http://

Actually, this reminds me of another question, that should arguably be in a separate e-mail: Have you considered having monit handle multiple
PIDs in a file or multiple PID files for a single "service" that has
multiple processes.  For example, nfsd typically starts up with
multiple processes.  It would be nice to tell monit:  make sure there
are always 8 of these running and gave it 8 PIDs to check. This seems
like a very useful feature.


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.

I'm not sure how we should go about solving this problem. If you have any ideas, please share.
