Ok - I grokked the script that handles the restar.  I think this could be the cause, it is essentially doing a 'stop && start' so the initiating start is producing that message since there is already another action going (to stop the app).  We will modify this to use 'restart' instead.

I am a little confused on why I am seeing this.  I have 4 applications on my host (in some cases up to 10) where we need to do a dailly/weekly rolling restart of all the apps on the host.   If I signal  4 monit restart commands to the apps in sequence I will end up in a situation where only 2 or 3 out of the apps come up and monit complains that an action is already in progress (assuming its from the other commands).  Monit can't handle getting signaled 4x to take down apps and restart them?  This creates some issues for us when we are doing a mass code roll out to 100s of applications.  We end up having to go and clean up things manually and the driver behind using monit is to provide an automated framework for managing apps and guaranteeing uptime. 

Is there any way to remedy this?  We are using a very low timeout in monit since we can't risk having apps down for long periods could this have something to do with it?
