Try to run monit in verbose mode (using -v option) and check logs.

Which monit version it is? On monit <4.9 there was bug, which may keep the error flag when monit was reloaded, but it didn't restarted the service incorrectly - just the report on status page was wrong (it was fixed in monit 4.9)

Hey guys,

I have monit set up on my freebsd webserver, and everything seems to be working, but there is a problem. On the monit service manager page (and with "monit status" it shows "Connection Failed" as the status for my apache service. When I run "monit validate" I get no errors.

Here is my monitrc related to that monitoring setup:

check process apache with pidfile /var/run/
    start program = "/usr/local/etc/rc.d/apache22 start"
    stop program  = "/usr/local/etc/rc.d/apache22 stop"
    if cpu > 60% for 2 cycles then alert
    if cpu > 80% for 5 cycles then restart
    if totalmem > 6144.0 MB for 5 cycles then restart
    if children > 500 then restart
    if loadavg(5min) greater than 10 for 8 cycles then stop
    if failed host port 80 protocol http
       request "/monit/token"
       then restart
#   monit will only monit/give alert in this mode.
    mode passive
    if 5 restarts within 5 cycles then timeout

I had to put monit into passive mode so it wont keep restarting apache. The output from "monit status" is below:

The port response time tells me that it does receive the token which just contains the text "Monit is running.". If I connect to the webserver and request this file, it confirms I can request it, and that I get the contents.

How do I get it to work properly? Every configuration I have checked is similar to mine...most are even less detailed.
