Another issue you may encounter is that the alert notification will come an
hour late because it evaluates the last execution only on the next scheduled
execution.  You are much better off writing a wrapper that is called more
frequently but that only calls the underlying program at intervals of your
choosing (and returns 0 otherwise), this will also give you the ability to
drop privileges and provide arguments to the program.  Hopefully these
issues will be resolved in a future release of monit.

Subject: Initial resources check

Hi all,

I have resource which I want to check once per hour. With default interval
of 10 seconds, I use following rule:

check program some-check-script with path "/path/to/"
   timeout 86400 seconds
   if status != 0 then alert
every 360 cycles

It works and checks hourly, but with initial 1 hour delay. On initial monit
start, I want this program to be checked on the very start of monit, and not
after an hour.

So, the question is - how to tell monit to run this check at the startup?
