I am planning to use monit for below purpose. Can I achieve below cases by using monit? I installed monit and trying to find the right configuration. But I am unable to get the configuration for remote server monitor.
Monitor remote server custom process without pid file from monit server.
Restart remote server custom process from monit server based on error/exception.
Alert remote server custom process if it is down.
Yes, you can do this.
Use a 'check program'
check program remote-service with path "/usr/local/bin/remote-service"
The script in /usr/local/bin will ssh into the remote system and perform the checks you want,
Perhaps by running the 'pgrep' command.
If the script sees that the remote service is OK
If the remote service is down
