Yeah whether it’s an alias or a macro, that would solve the problem. I guess I’ll have to look into this a little more.

The implementation of "if not changed timestamp then ACTION" as an alias for "if timestamp > <cycle length> then <action>" would be simple, but i think the "if not changed" will be confusing - if you see it in the configuration file, it's not obvious which timeframe is the test related to.


We can probably add some macros ... currently there is just $HOST macro, something like $CYCLE_LENGTH may solve the problem - you can then use:


            if timestamp > $CYCLE_LENGTH then <action>



Best regards,

Thanks for the response!


I’ve tried this. I just don’t like hard coding more time values in the config. Saying “not changed” makes the monit daemon interval the only configurable time value.

Perhaps you could check the age of the timestamp; for example:

    if timestamp > 2 hour then alert

Hi all,


I have an application that should touch a file periodically. If it doesn’t I’d like monit to execute some script. The monit documentation show a check for “if timestamp changed.” Is there some way I can check “if timestamp NOT changed?”
