[monit] SSHD pid and parent pid is -1

Subject: [monit] SSHD pid and parent pid is -1
Date: Tue, 17 Mar 2009 16:13:20 +1000


I have installed monit on our Solaris server and used the sshd config example 
from docs in the distributable to perform a shakedown test.  I am seeing -1 for 
sshd pid and parent pid.  This also happens for the kms application I am hoping 
to monitor once shakedown is complete.  Details below.

Other than a pid file, what are the prerequisites for monit to manage a Solaris 
process?  Are there naming conventions that need to be adhered to for 
process/service names for monit to functiona correctly?  Does monit need to run 
as root?  I have installed it as a non-root user under the home directory using 
the --prefix option with the configure script.

Please advise....
