Monit 5.0 solves race conditions on start, which may solve your problem. You get get monit 5.0 beta here:


Monit 5.0 appears to have solved the unpredictable results restarting ar_sendmail -- to the extent that a week's follow-up can assess an unpredictable problem. However, so far there are no orphaned ar_sendmail processes now when monit restarts it.

Huzzah, and thanks for a great product!


If it won't solve the problem, run monit with -v option and provide the log output for the problematic time frame.

Hey everyone,

Is there such a thing as a stuck process?  I'm new to administration
so let me describe what happened:

I had 3 processes runnign for about 4 days, then I uploaded new code
via capistrano.  Capistrano tells monit to restart the 3 processes,
but they all said execution failed.  So I logged into the server and
saw the processes were still running.  That means they were never

So I kill them manually (using the same commands in the monit config
file), and then get monit to run them, and it's able to start it.  I
then tested monit, and restarted the processes one by one (all via
monit).  They were able to restart fine.

I also did a restart from Capistrano and it restarted fine.

Would you guys know what the problem might be?

Thank you,
Ramon Tayag
