Hello Frwa,

the program check was added in Monit 5.3 - you need to upgrade Monit.

The concept of include files allows to modularize the configuration - it's optional and if you want to keep it simple, put everything into single monitrc file (otherwise the include files can be enabled using "include" statement - see manual for details).

Dear Werner,
                   So if we keep separate how will the monit executable will be able to read different .conf file? Ok I got it why you want to keep it separate it due to updates of monit. So since I am on the bad side what is your best advice here ? Any other method to simulate it.

You can put anything you wrote into the separate file into monit.conf
(which I don't have, it's monitrc for me). The reason for keeping it
separated is that on an update, the central config may be rewritten, and
that your parts of the config might get lost. If you keep it in a
separate file, it will stay there even when you update monit.

From what I found, "check program" must have been introduced with
version 5.3, so you are on the bad side here.
