Symptom: Data collected counter freezes for every item monitored. The http daemon is still working but no new checks are performed anymore. New commands are still possible (http or command line) but not executed. Monit start then summary shows "initializing" forever. Cause: check host router with address "192.168.0.x", if failed ping4 then alert rule. The moment 192.168.0.x went offline the next status change hangs. Monit reload, service monit restart does not help. Hangs on router initializing... Workaround: change address "192.168.0.x" to hostname. It looks like monit does not like icmp destination host unreachable responses from the router. Changing to hostname gives a unknown host message witch works. Environment: Android armhf cpu, debian chrooted +ipv6. Got this problem after moving from v5.12 to v5.13.
