> Here is the problem scenario:
> 1. A process is running in while(1) loop with sleep. Process name: whileTest
> 2. Once the process is started a pid is captured rom ps output and written to
> the pid file /var/run/while.pid
> 3. After the process has started, monit is started with: monit -c ./monitrc
> set daemon 30 # check services at 30 second intervals
> check process whileTest with pidfile /var/run/while.pid
> start program = "/tmp/whileTest &"
> 4. Now kill the whileTest process using: kill -9 <PID>
5. Make sure that original whileTest process got killed.
> 6. Wait more than 30 seconds and verify whether a new whileTest process has started.
> I could see that the process has never restarted.
> Any ideas on what could be missing here?
