Hi, everyone!

We have just released Monit 5.7 You can download the new release from:

Release information:

New: Support for arguments added to 'check program'. 
     Arguments are whitespace separated strings. For instance:

     check program list-files with path "/bin/ls -l -r -t /tmp"
           if status != 0 then alert

New: Added restart as an optional service action. When Monit
     is called to restart a service, it previously called the stop
     program registered with the service and then the start program.
     Now, if a restart program is registred with the service, this
     will be called instead, otherwise Monit falls back to its old
     behaviour. Example:
      check process apache with pidfile /var/run/
            start   = "/usr/sbin/apachectl start"
            stop    = "/usr/sbin/apachectl stop"
            restart = "/usr/sbin/apachectl restart" <- New
New: Use mysql 4.1 protocol in MySQL check, required for checking 
     mysql-proxy. Thanks to Philippe Kueck

New: Skip connection checks during startup timeout.
     Philippe Kueck

New: Improved communication with M/Monit. Thanks to Hippo Lin. For 
     scalability purpose, this Monit version should only be used with
     M/Monit version 3.1 or later.

Fixed: A problem where Monit stopped if an error occurred during MTA
       connection close.

Fixed: Make the Memcache protocol test faster.

Fixed: Solaris zone: fix system memory usage report.

Fixed: Use select chiper list with SSL server instead of relying on default


If you have questions, comments or any other feedback about this release, please reply to this post.
