[monit] Monit LOG redirection issue

I have query in MONIT log redirection. I am trying to start monit by INIT process.

MONIT Version
-monit version 4.9
-CentOS release 4.4 (Final)

Following is my initial configuration

mo:2345:respawn:/usr/bin/monit -Ivc /etc/monitrc 
m0:06:wait:/usr/bin/monit -Ivc /etc/monitrc stop all

set init
set daemon 60
set httpd port 2812
        allow localhost
set logfile /var/log/monit_errors.log

Monit is started properly and logs are redirected to monit_errors.log. But after every one minute log messages are shown in my console terminal(display window)even though I have redirected logs to monit_errors.log(It also redirects the log to LOG file).

Is there any way to avoid the above problem? MONIT log messages should not be shown in the console terminal( user display).

I tried the following config in /etc/inittab to avoid the redirection problem.

Modified /etc/inittab
mo:2345:respawn:/usr/bin/monit -Ivc /etc/monitrc  > /dev/null 2>&1
m0:06:wait:/usr/bin/monit -Ivc /etc/monitrc stop all

The above config does solve the log redirection problem. But I am facing yet another issue(needs to be confirmed is an issue or not).

Due to above config I am not seeing "MONIT http server stopped" message in the display window, while REBOOTing the  machine.

But with the earlier config in inittab (without "> /dev/null" redirection), I WAS seeing "MONIT http server stopped" message in the display window while REBOOTing machine.

So my concern is, whether MONIT stops properly before shutdown/reboot.
I didn't re-direct m0 entry in /etc/inittab, but still "MONIT shutdown" message is not shown.

Could some one point me a solution to solve above issues?
