And there I thought I was pretty clever to use HTTP for this :) That
way you can have apps talking directly to the monit server and even
use a browser.

For example here is an app for starting apache:

  perl -MIO::Socket -e '
   $s= IO::Socket::INET->new(PeerAddr => localhost, PeerPort => 2812) 
   or die "monit http is down\n";
   print($s "GET /apache?action=start HTTP/1.0\r\n\r\n"); 
   printf("%s\n", <$s>=~/200/?"Apache started":"Error staring apache");'

Actually using HTTP for remote control _is_ clever if I have to say it
myself :)
