OK, we'll look on it ... we're working on final M/Monit-2.0 and Monit-5.0 release now, so it will be candidate for Monit-5.1 most probably.

As workaround you can use mountpoint instead of device.

I've got servers which after each boot get a different drive name from the /dev/sd[a-z] pool assigned.

The solution to this is to use for example /dev/disk/by-uuid/ 484a2f10-2f70-46b5-b235-f63d55b5ccef instead of /dev/sdX. This is what is used in /etc/fstab to correctly mount the partitions.

However monit does not support by-uuid giving an access error. The reason for this is, I assume, that /dev/disk/by-uuid/ 484a2f10-2f70-46b5-b235-f63d55b5ccef is a symlink pointing to ../../ sda1 and not a real device itself.

Please support symlinks as devices. Thanks!
