Follow up question to cycles:

With the 4.6 beta this syntax works. However, each time the service fails in one cycle and passes in the next cycle, I get the email that the service passed. Is there a syntax to only get the message if it passed in the fourth cycle

This is because you omited the passed/recovery part of the rule - it then defaults to alert on first passed cycle:

if failed port 80 for 3 times within 3 cycles then alert
[else if passed then alert]

If you want to modify the recovery condition, then you need to be more verbous, for example:

if failed port 80 for 3 times then alert
else if passed for 5 times then alert

Se monit-4.6 manual for complete syntax (
