My limited, uninformed testing shows that monit will run, monit
will start and stop programs, monit accepts './monit -c monit.test quit'
type commands including stopping and starting services. I know there
is a way to link statically a program so that it does not require
cygwin and should be executable outside of cygwin and bash.

The web server (httpd) portion of monit works also.

I need the win32 capability for my next job. I don't need ICMP in the
win32 platform for the next job, so I will not miss it there. I do
need the 'check status'. I've started working on that code already.

I also have an idea for deployment and synchronization that I'll do
after 'check status'.

I've copied the developer list on this message. For the developer list,
what is the prefered method of creating a patch for someone else to test?


-------------------------- monit.test config file
# globals
set httpd port 2812
  allow localhost 
set daemon 10
set alert address@hidden
set mailserver txexc103, txexc104

# checks
check file test_file with path /tmp/test
  group system
  if failed checksum then alert
  if failed permission 644 then alert
  #if failed uid mikee then alert
  #if failed gid mikee then alert

check process apache with pidfile /tmp/
  group www
  start program = "/tmp/apache start"
  stop program = "/tmp/apache stop"
  if failed host txedi001 port 80
    protocol HTTP request /pod/frames.html then restart
  if 5 restarts within 5 cycles then timeout

check process xterm with pidfile /tmp/
  group wm
  start program = "/tmp/"
  stop program = "/bin/sh -c '/usr/bin/kill -9 `cat /tmp/`'"
