chiremat created an issue

i see that when i stop the service monit detects the service restart but fails to populate the right status on monit cli/ui. if i see that particular serivce status then actually it is running state. [root@copper-eventbroker-01 ~]# monit summary The Monit daemon 5.5 uptime: 11m

    Please check Monit logs, it can be just configuration issue.

    On some platforms (RHE/CentOS) there was problem with program execution, the upcoming 5.9 fixes it.

    You can test the development branch if you want to, you can get snapshot here:

    To compile:

    tar -xzf master.tar.gz
    cd tildeslash*

    Thanks for the information.

    i would like to know more on the issue.

    My config is as below: check process collectd with pidfile /var/run/collectd/ start program = "/etc/init.d/collectd start" stop program = "/etc/init.d/collectd stop" if changed pid then exec "/etc/sensu/plugins/ 'collectd PID changed' '' 1" if 1 restarts within 1 cycles then exec "/etc/sensu/plugins/ 'collectd restarted' '' 1"

    Steps i did to hit the issue: 1.i did manual stoping of the service by "service collectd stop". 2. after that once i see the ''monit summary" i notice Timeout but if i check the "service collect status" then it shows it is running.

    what could be the reason or cause for it. plz help me understand this issue.

    Few questions:

    1.) please can you check the Monit log mentioned in the previous post? If there was some problem, it will provide more details 2.) what platform it is? (for example CentOS 6.3?) 3.) what Monit version it is?
