Hi all! I have a simple question about using monit's program checks.

I plan to use program check, with it's exit code I can force monit to send alert mail message, ok. But how to include into that message some output produced by checking program?

I could modify program to write it's output in some file but how to tell monit to use this file during message composing?

There is something description field in mail-format, is it suitable for this purpose?

From monit's docs:

The subject and body may contain $NAME variables, which are expanded by Monit. Here is a list of variables that can be used when composing an alert message

$DESCRIPTION The description of the error condition

Thanks in advance for your answers!

So the HP guy comes up to me and he says, 'If you say nasty things like that to vendors you're not going to get anything'. I said 'no, in eight years of saying nothing, we've got nothing, and I'm going to start saying nasty things, in the hope that some of these vendors will start giving me money so I'll shut up'.
