the service name "fail2ban" is just descriptive name - it doesn't need to match the process' name. Important is the pidfile content - monit reads from it PID of the process to be monitored => in your case the file "/var/run/" should contain 20099

Hi list,
i'm trying to keep fail2ban ( monitored on my
Centos5.2 server.

i've tried using a config like this:

check process fail2ban with pidfile /var/run/
  start program = "/etc/init.d/fail2ban start"
  stop  program = "/etc/init.d/fail2ban stop"
  if failed unixsocket /var/run/fail2ban/fail2ban.sock then restart
  if 5 restarts within 5 cycles then timeout

the problem i'm having is that there is no process called "fail2ban" to
monitor. the process that fail2ban starts up under looks like this:

ps ax | grep fail2ban
20099 ?        Sl     0:31 /usr/bin/python /usr/bin/fail2ban-server -b
-s /var/run/fail2ban/fail2ban.sock -x

Do someone have an idea how on how to make it working?
