|In Monit you can only filter out specific event type (such as the timestamp) - both failure and recovery. It doesn't support suppressing recovery alert only.|
M/Monit has more fine grained rules, which allow to select failed events only:
Monit working wonderfully - checking file timestamp, alerts on failure, reminder on continued failure sends as expected. However, I get a lot of complaints about the recovery (Timestamp Succeeded) alert that fires when everything is working properly again. Is there a method for suppressing this recovery alert? Or directly stating to only send the Alert on failure? I see some entries in the mailing list about that from 2006 (including a response that says the functionality is planned), but can find no documentation on how to do this.
Thanks in advance.
