I am using monit 5.4 on a Raspberry PI.
I saw some messages from 2008 talking about counters reset but it seems that this issue is still here
First time, the condition is observed (waiting 5 times that CPU is under 2%)
Then the service is stopped and restarted, this is correct.
BUT now, Monit only waits one time to restart the service as if the defect counter was not reset.
