[monit] Error in monit configuration

Hi, I would like to use monit in a simple way: monitor a process and if the process goes down then execute a script.

This is my monitrc:




set logfile /var/log/monit.log

set daemon  5


set httpd port 2812

use address localhost

allow localhost

allow admin:monit

allow @monit

allow @users


check process mysql with pidfile /var/db/mysql/

if failed port 3306 protocol mysql for 1 cycles then exec "/home/manager/"




The problem is that if I manually stop mysql to check if monit works well, the script is not executed, and in the log file I find every 5 seconds these 2 lines:


[ Aug 15 18:41:02] error    : 'mysql' process is not running

[ Aug 15 18:41:02] error    : monit: Start or stop method not defined -- process mysql


I don’t want monit to try to restart the process, but only to execute my script, what did I failed in the configuration file?


A big thanks in advance…
