|Subject:||Monit daemon starting child monit process|
|Date:||Fri, 13 Feb 2015 15:49:41 +0000|
I’ve recently upgraded monit from version 5.1.1 to to 5.4 and now I sometimes see two instances of the monit daemon running. The second instance was started by the first:
$ ps -eaf | fgrep monit
UID PID PPID C STIME TTY TIME CMD
s_gr 6389 1 0 Feb07 ? 00:12:25 monit/5.4/bin/monit -c control_file -p pid_file -s state_file
s_gr 13919 6389 0 00:30 ? 00:00:00 monit/5.4/bin/monit -c control_file -p pid_file -s state_file
At the time the second instance started, 00:30, we are starting several services using the ‘monit start’ command (using a named group).
Is there circumstance in which monit will start a child process of itself? Could this be a bug in version 5.4? Never had this problem with 5.1.1. Is it best to upgrade to the latest version?
Thanks a lot.
