the way you added the configuration is correct, the problem will be most probably in the "check process" configuration ... if you use a pidfile, please check that the pid from the file is running, if you use a pattern based check, test the pattern using "monit procmatch <pattern>"
I want to add processes to monit (monit-5.2.5-3.11.amzn1.x86_64) during runtime. So far I include include /etc/monit.d/*
all files from a certain directory. When I add a new process I place a file into /etc/monit.d/ and runmonit -c /etc/monit.conf reload
Th problem is that I get a process is not running error in my logs. Any idea how I can get rid of the error message?
I most likely will not be alerted on this. But I want to get alerts if my process dies after the first start?
