Hello everyone!

FYI: I'll refrain from posting M/Monit news to this list in the future, but this is special since M/Monit finally is available and I thought you might be interested.

I'm happy to announce that M/Monit 2.0 has been released today and is now available. M/Monit 2.0 can be downloaded from:

We are now officially out of the beta phase and this is the final 2.0 release.

Judging from previous beta releases, it seems that we have a 2 month turnaround time for new releases. We'll try to continue with this frequency, at least this first year as we have plans for many new and useful features, both in M/Monit and Monit. We'll keep you posted.

A big, big thanks to all of you who have helped us test M/Monit during the beta phase and for giving us useful suggestions, feedback and ideas. This is highly appreciated!

Release information:

The changes in this release compared to the previous beta 7 are minor tweaks behind the scene and alignment of M/Monit events with Monit.

There are a few database changes, and if you want to upgrade from M/ Monit beta 7, you can run an upgrade script for the database as explained in the change log:

We also provide a migrate script in the upgrade directory if you want to move over from SQLite to MySQL or PostgreSQL. This is recommended if you run Monit on more than 10 hosts, as SQLite can have scalability issues with more hosts.


With more than 50 new features and bug fixes, we are also happy to announce that Monit 5.0 is out of beta today and available from M/Monit 2.0 requires this version of Monit.

We hope Monit 5.0 will be picked up by package distributors shortly, so it will be available directly in distributions as well.
