I have setup monit with check_program. I am running monit on local server and monit check the program at regular intervel. it is stopping the tomcat server if  thread count is more than my threshold but not starting the tomcat server back.  Getting below log in monit.log. Please suggest what I am missing here.

[UTC Jul 31 08:14:59] info     : 'ThreadCount' start: /opt/tomcat-9620/bin/


Monit configuration:


check program ThreadCount with path "/data/scripts/"

if status > 35 then restart

I am planning to use monit for below purpose. Can I achieve below cases by using monit? I installed monit and trying to find the right configuration. But I am unable to get the configuration for remote server monitor.  

Monitor remote server custom process without pid file from monit server.
Restart remote server custom process from monit server based on error/exception.
Alert remote server custom process if it is down.

Yes, you can do this.

Use a 'check program'

check program remote-service with path "/usr/local/bin/remote-service"

The script in /usr/local/bin will ssh into the remote system and perform the checks you want,
Perhaps by running the 'pgrep' command.
If the script sees that the remote service is OK

If the remote service is down
exit 1
