Thank you for patch :)

We will look on it and test the protocol check with RADIUS server

  As background, RADIUS is a UDP protocol with certain packet format and
authentication requirements.  The issue is to get the correctly
formatted packet from Monit to the RADIUS server, with the correct

  The code looks like it does that, but I haven't had a chance to test
it.  The basic plumbing seems OK: it's patched into Monit in the same
way that everything else is.

  I still need to test the packet send/receive functionality.

  The only real question is how to give a "shared secret" from the monit
configuration to the check_radius() routine.  RADIUS needs this for
packet signing, and it can be different for every RADIUS server.

  For now, I've hard-coded it.  It would be good for someone who knows
more than I do about Monit to add some minor configurability.
