Hey everyone,

Sorry if I'm doing this wrong but this is pretty much my first mailing list 

Welcome!  You could read:

for an excellent summary of how to go about it. For instance, a more specific subject line might be in order. And to help, folks on list will definitely need to know your OS, including distro if linux, general hardware spec, version of monit (you did that below). So, eg: "I'm running monit 4.10.1 on CentOS 5 on a dual Opteron with 2G of RAM".

I have a slight problem that just started. I've been using monit for a couple 
of months now and
it's been working great. About 2 days ago my server "freaked out" and monit 
began sending me alert
after alert. So I figured a restart would help. I even tried updating monit to 
the latest version
to no avail. What happens is I enable monit and sudden begin to receive old 
reports from 2 days ago
sent over and over again, they never stop. I get 100's of alerts from the same 
events that happened
2 days ago, they are even dated by monit as 2 days ago.

Your problem may or may not be monit related. There are many approaches, but for starters, debugging a system problem is best done by reading the logs. These however, vary with distro. On the production Cent servers I manage, the pertinent ones might be "/var/log/messages" and maybe "/var/log/maillog". At home on a mangled Slackware box, the "messages" file would instead be "system" (IIRC).
