|Subject:||[monit] monit start up script|
|Date:||Fri, 20 Mar 2009 13:51:39 -0500|
We were trying to install monit as our Linux monitoring tool, however; after many reinstallation attempts we could not’t get monit to start from init at boot-time, matter fact these two file never do not seem to exist /etc/monit and /etc/default/monit in any of the installations. We tried monit 4.10 and monit 5.0 beta_7 complied packages with the same result.
We are not sure if this is related to the OS, we are using (SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 - Linux 22.214.171.124-0.34-bigsmp #1 SMP Fri Jan 16 14:59:01 UTC 2009 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux).
These are the installation steps we followed.
$ tar zxvf monit-x.y.z.tar.gz (were x.y.z denotes version numbers)
$ cd monit-x.y.z
$ ./configure (use ./configure --help to view available options)
$ make && make install.
I am not sure if we need to pass an argument to. /configre that would get the desire installation.
To give you an idea about our installation the command
find / -name monit gives the following ouput
All monit files are under $/opt/monit-5.0_beta7/
We also tried to install monit-4.10.1-40.1.i586.rpm with no luck.
$ rpm -ivh monit-4.10.1-40.1.i586.rpm
$ error: Failed dependencies:
$ rpmlib(PayloadIsLzma) <= 4.4.2-1 is needed by monit-4.10.1-40.1.i586
This error is common when you tried to install rpms that are not 100% compatible with the OS version
Monit is working fine; we just want to be able to have it starts automatically at boot time.
Any ideas what we might be doing wrong?
Thanks a lot
