Hi Lutz-

Thanks for this snippet. I noticed you listed two separate hosts (macbook.and 
macbookpro.local)., Was that significant or just a typo in the message?

I’m trying to make sure I understand the logic, though. 

If I’m reading it right, it says 

- if I can’t connect to the internal web server within 30 seconds of 3 cycles, 
try to reload monit (which would reset the count?)
- if I tried to reload 3 times within 10 cycles, then stop trying

If that understanding is correct, how does it ever get out of the unmonitored 
state again? 

If you could say a bit more about why you did it this way, I’d really 
appreciate it.

Sorry if this seems like very basic questions.
