Re: [monit] Monit restart command problem

If the service is process, monit execs the stop command and waits for the process with pid matching the pidfile content to stop. As soon as the process stops, start script is executed. If the process is stopping quickly, the start script can be executed very quickly (within the same second).

If the check is for different service type (like file, directory, host, etc.), then the stop script is executed followed by start immediately since monit has currently no way how to identify whether the stop script finished OK or not.

What is the configuration of jboss_eradbre service?

You can run monit with -v option to see details.

I am seeing some strange behavior from Monit when a restart command is issued. When I issue a "monit restart app_name" command, Monit is sending the stop and start commands in the monitrc file back to back within 1/10 of a second. It is not sending the stop command and waiting for it to finish before sending the start command.

If I run the scripts outside of Monit, all is fine. What should I look for? Below is a snip of the Monit log from when the problem happens…
