Hello all,

   a simple test like:

check host with address
        if failed
                port 80 protocol http
                with content == "Example Domain"
                and timeout 2 seconds
        then alert

   gives on the monit webinterface results like:

Port Response time      0.284s to [HTTP via TCP]
Port    If failed [ [HTTP via TCP] with timeout 2000 seconds] 
then alert

While at first I thought the "2000 seconds" is only an display error, I have found on an internal server cases where "Port Response time" was slow (4.117s or somesuch), but the check did not fail and not raise an alert.

Port Response time      4.117s to <localserver> [HTTP via TCPSSL]
Port    If failed [<localserver> [HTTP via TCPSSL] with timeout 2000 seconds] 
then alert

I'm pretty sure that it once worked, ("once" being around May 2014, when I first used it), but I did not find a single alarm for 2015.

I'm using "This is Monit version 5.9" on Gentoo; I do not know which version I used before and when I migrated.

   What is wrong here?
