Re: [monit] Monitor mounts with monit

which Monit version do you use and can you show the configuration?

The "check filesystem ..." test was added in Monit-5.0 (we have renamed "check device" to "check filesystem" since word "device" was confusing). Monit-5.0 supports "check device" as alias for "check filesystem" for backward compatibility.

If you use Monit < 5.0, you should use "check device".

Hello Andrew,
Thank you for reply, so the configuration I need has to look like this:

check file usbextern with path /media/usb/UnMounted
  start = "/bin/mount /dev/sdd1"
  stop = "/bin/umount /des/sdd1"
  alert address@hidden


But what do you say about "check filesystem" statement? It does not
work, it recognize it like "check file system" so it checks the file
system which is not correct.

A simple is this.  Lets say you have two mount points /media/nfs &

Before you mount the device create an empty file at the mount point (I
useually use UnMounted).

The test for unmounted is if file /media/nfs/UnMounted exists.

It's lighter than using mount and grep|sed|awk|perl

I have a nfs mount and also an external USB hard drive, both of this
resources are mounted. Sometimes it unmounts for I don't know what
reason. How can I check with monit if it is mounted or not, and then
take an action?

I have tried with check filesystem, but monit gives me an error, it
recognizes the check file statement and considers "system" as a file
name, which is very incorrect, it may be a bug.
Can someone help me please?

Thank you.
