currently there is no such statement - the automatic timeout/unmonitor on excessive errors is available only with the restart actions => for example:

  if 5 restarts within 5 cycles then unmonitor

We can generalize the syntax in the future to allow "IF <x> <action> WITHIN <y> CYCLES THEN <action>", so it will be possible to disable alerts using the syntax you mentioned.

Hello all,

Using monit 4, can an alerting config block be modified as below to disable monitoring when temporary system aberrations result in unceasing alerting?

check process http-resource with pidfile /var/lock/subsys/ej_httpd_all/
    start program = "/opt/apache/bin/ej_httpd start resource"
    stop program = "/opt/apache/bin/ej_httpd stop resource"
    if failed host port 80 then alert
    if cpu > 80% for 15 cycles then alert
    if totalmem > 750 MB for 10 cycles then alert
    if children > 150 for 10 cycles then alert
    if loadavg(5min) greater than 15 for 10 cycles then alert
    if 5 alerts in 5 cycles then unmonitor  <== new code

My goal here is to interrupt alerting if 5 contiguous evaluation cycles result in 5 alerts.

Many thanks.
