Re: Monit ignoring Memory amount limit

Try to enable monit verbose mode (using -v option) and check logs ... it logs/reports the memory usage for each cycle. How does your monit configuration describe the mongrel processes? Is the process with the 700MB usage related to the monitored parent? (the one with pidfile matching the monit configuration).

Have you checked that processes stay above 150 MB for the entire
duration of 5 cycles? If not, the if-test would not trigger.
