I would like to be able to execute an arbitrary action after a

only thing allowed in the "if x restarts within y cycles" clause is
the timeout command. Is that true?

Yes, that's true. We plan to add this feature, there is also patch from Alec which implements it. I'll look on it and will try to integrate with upcoming monit 5.0.


In my case, what I am trying to achieve is a node failover (using
heartbeat) if mysql has crashed and cannot be restarted after several
attempts. Something like:

  if 5 restarts within 10 cycles then exec "/usr/lib/heartbeat/hb_standby"

What would be the best way to achieve this?
