you can also say `monit unmonitor [service]`  which pretty much does exactly what it sounds like.

Hi Vicky,
the first point is something I thought about a while before. I think there is no easy solution because the "machine" does not know if the service crashed or was canceled. The only thing you could do form my opinion is to extend the init-script of the service with something which sets a system wide variable which is visible for monit (just as how I would try to do it in principle for the monit init script):

case "$1" in
                echo -n "Starting monit "

        ### RESET THE MANULA FLAG ####
        if test "yes" = "${ monit_stop_manual }"; then
                export monit_stop_manual = ""

                if test "yes" = "${MONIT_VIA_INITTAB}"; then
                        echo "via /etc/inittab"
                        "${MONIT_MODIFY_INITTAB}" --add && echo -en "${esc}[1A"
            PID_DIR=$(/bin/basename "$MONIT_PID_FILE")
            /bin/mkdir -p -m0700 "$PID_DIR"
                        checkproc -p "${MONIT_PID_FILE}" "${MONIT_BIN}" && \
                                echo -n " Warning: monit already running. "
                        startproc -p "${MONIT_PID_FILE}" "${MONIT_BIN}" -c "${MONIT_RC_FILE}" ${MONIT_ARGS}
                rc_status -v
                test $? -eq 0 && touch "${MONIT_SUBSYS_FILE}"
                echo -n "Shutting down monit "
        export monit_stop_manual = "yes"

                if test "yes" = "${MONIT_VIA_INITTAB}"; then
                        echo "from /etc/inittab"
                        "${MONIT_MODIFY_INITTAB}" --remove && echo -en "${esc}[1A"
                        checkproc -p "${MONIT_PID_FILE}" "${MONIT_BIN}" || \
                                echo -n " Warning: monit not running. "
                        killproc -p "${MONIT_PID_FILE}" "${MONIT_BIN}"
                rc_status -v
                test $? -eq 0 && rm -f "${MONIT_SUBSYS_FILE}"

If this exists you should be able to use it in your monit configuration (how to this maybe should answered by the monit team with a fully working solution ;-)

Subject: How to prevent monit from auto -restarting process

Hi all,

I have been looking through archive and I still have a couple of questions.

1. If there a why to prevent monit from auto restarting a process that has been manually stopped?

2. when monit is install for the first time, it fails the first time, but succeeds the on the following starts.  Is there a setting or file that is needed intially?
