Re: [monit] using monit with fail2ban

perhaps i failed to quote the pertinent line in my logs:

Sep  7 12:30:25 foo monit[24122]: 'fail2ban' process is not running

the problem is not that monit can't start fil2ban with /etc/init.d/ fail2ban start - it stops and starts just fine - the problem seems to be that monit can't detect that a fail2ban process is running, and keeps trying to restart it. my thought being that it's because the running process is listed as:

20099 ? Sl 0:31 /usr/bin/python /usr/bin/fail2ban-server -b -s /var/run/fail2ban/fail2ban.sock -x

I suggest that the problem is related to the highly restricted path that monit uses, monit itself appears to be working correctly. suggest you go through /etc/init.d/fail2ban and make sure all paths are absolute paths that don't rely upon external variables
