Monit fails to start a process that it is monitoring sometimes ( 2 out of 10 times)
The process is killed manually (e.g. pkill -9 xyz)
The pid file of the process that died is still intact but monit doesn't start the process.
The monit.log says: monit: Warning process 'xyz' was not started after 5 secs.
Changing the mode to active resolved the issue, but I have been told to identify the root cause.
I have already tried using strace as per monit FAQ. That resulted in a zombie process.
If I don't use strace, zombie is not created.Please guide me in resolving the issue.
I fail to understand why this problem happens once in a while.
What would prevent monit from starting a process? Appreciate your help in this regard.
