I suspect that you use the statement "set eventqueue basedir / directory" someplace in your monitrc control file. This statement tell Monit to queue events it cannot send for some reason and try again later. And from the look of it Monit has queued a lot of messages.

As a quick fix I suggest that you first remove all queue messages [1] and if the problem persist remove the "set eventqueue.." statement from your control file which stops Monit from queueing messages.

Normally Monit should remove queued messages once sent and not resend them again and again so something is wrong. It would also be great if you could investigate your mail server log and check any error messages from Monit and also consult the Monit log file for any clues.

[1] Go to the directory pointed to by basedir and remove all files starting with a timestamp_servicename

Hey everyone,

Sorry if I'm doing this wrong but this is pretty much my first mailing list post.

I have a slight problem that just started. I've been using monit for a couple of months now and it's been working great. About 2 days ago my server "freaked out" and monit began sending me alert after alert. So I figured a restart would help. I even tried updating monit to the latest version to no avail. What happens is I enable monit and sudden begin to receive old reports from 2 days ago sent over and over again, they never stop. I get 100's of alerts from the same events that happened 2 days ago, they are even dated by monit as 2 days ago.

Is there anything I can do to stop this? I'd like to enable monit running again but don't want to get 1000's of messages.
