My question is about startup and dependencies. Suppose P2 depends on P1. It makes sense that if you use "monit start P2", then monit should start P1 before it starts P2. However, running "monit start P1" will *also* cause P2 to be started despite P2 not being a dependency of P1. This seems like an error. Is there any chance that behavior could be changed?
This interferes with some production deployment code, and results in our needing to unmonitor a related group of processes before manually starting processes since starting P1 will start P2 (unintentionally).
