I subscribed to the list just to ask this question, I hope that's okay 
(neither Google nor the archives could help).

I'm running clamav-milter and want to monitor it with monit. Here is what I'm 

check process clamav-milter with pidfile /var/run/clamav/
    start program = "/etc/init.d/clamav-milter start"
    stop  program = "/etc/init.d/clamav-milter stop"
    if failed unix /var/run/clamav/clamav-milter.ctl then restart
    group virus
    depends clamav-milter_init
    depends clamav-milter_bin

check file clamav-milter_init with path /etc/init.d/clamav-milter
    group virus

check file clamav-milter_bin with path /usr/sbin/clamav-milter
    group virus

monit tells me that clamav-milter is not running and tries to restart it;

[GMT Nov 18 14:29:19] 'clamav-milter' process is not running
[GMT Nov 18 14:29:19] 'clamav-milter' trying to restart
[GMT Nov 18 14:29:19] 'clamav-milter' start: /etc/init.d/clamav-milter

It's unsuccessful in doing so (because it's already running). It seems that 
monit can't see clamav-milter running for some reason.

Obviously I've checked to make sure "/var/run/clamav/" is 
really the correct PID, etc. Any help solving this would be greatly 

All other monitoring (eg. bind9, apache, sendmail, et. al.) is working fine 
(except openntpd which apparently can't be monitored because it doesn't have 
a PID file?).
