I just intalled monit using Fedora core 2 distribution. My /etc/monitrc config:

set httpd port 2812
     allow localhost
     allow traxx:hitman

check process apache2 with pidfile /var/run/
   start program = "/etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd start"
   stop  program = "/etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd stop"
   if failed host port 80
        protocol HTTP request /monit/token
        then restart
   if 5 restarts within 5 cycles then timeout
   group www
   depends apache2_init
   depends apache2_bin

check file apache2_init with path /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd
   group apache

check file apache2_bin with path /usr/sbin/httpd
   group apache

where: ip address of  monit server

But everytime i start monit service it usually says:

Nov  2 15:06:26 pumbaa httpd: httpd shutdown succeeded
Nov  2 15:10:45 pumbaa monit: 'apache2' process is not running
Nov  2 15:10:45 pumbaa monit: 'apache2' trying to restart
Nov  2 15:10:45 pumbaa monit: 'apache2' start: /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd
Nov  2 15:10:45 pumbaa monit: 'apache2' failed to start
Nov  2 15:10:45 pumbaa monit: monit startup succeeded
Nov  2 15:10:45 pumbaa httpd: httpd startup succeeded

# service monit status
monit dead but subsys locked

Did i missed something?

To unsubscribe:

here's the output...

monit: Debug: Adding host allow 'localhost' (
monit: Debug: Adding net allow ''.
monit: Debug: Adding credentials for user 'traxx'.
monit: Error: Poll time not defined. Please define poll time in the
control file or use the -d option when starting monit

Problem is that you try to start monit in daemon mode, but there is no poll time (monitoring frequency) specified.

You can either add to the /etc/monitrc the 'set daemon ...' statement:

 set daemon 5

(for example to monitor each 5s)

or add '-d ...' option to the start command line in startup script.


thanks martin! i think it's working now...
