hi all,

so we are running monit version:

/usr/bin/monit -V
This is Monit version 5.12.2
Copyright (C) 2001-2015 Tildeslash Ltd. All Rights Reserved.


cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.6 (Tikanga)

and it is pretty cool! it is allowing us to monitor the application health of some java tomcat applications we have through calling some curl checks we have in a bash script.

what is not quite working correctly is the start aspect of the program. sometimes it starts, sometimes it doesn't, sometimes it brings up java/tomcat but certain aspects of the application don't work. quite puzzling... i have been looking at logs, writing wrapper scripts and googling extensively but have not come to a definitive reason as to why the start program only works when i preface it with a wrapper script. any light you guys could shed on this would be most welcome! oh, also of note is that the "stop" program facet of the monitrc file always works. i can see the java/tomcat processes disappear from the process list but it is the start that bombs.

our monitrc files look like so:

cat /etc/monitrc
# /etc/monit.conf

set daemon 60

set httpd port 2812
    allow blah:bleh
    allow localhost

set logfile /opt/company/log/monit/adm001

include /opt/company/etc/monit/*.monitrc


then the include file looks like so:

check process wbm003 with pidfile /var/run/

start program "/usr/bin/sudo /fusionone/bin/ /fusionone/bin/f1 -v start" with timeout 170 seconds

stop program "/usr/bin/sudo /fusionone/bin/ /fusionone/bin/f1 -v stop" with timeout 170 seconds

  if not exist for 3 cycles then alert

        mode passive

check program wbm003_program with path "/fusionone/bin/" with timeout 10 seconds
  if status != 0 then alert


the wrapper script is just this:

cat /fusionone/bin/
  echo "MONIT-WRAPPER date"
  echo "MONIT-WRAPPER env"
  echo "MONIT-WRAPPER $@"
  echo "MONIT-WRAPPER exit code $R"
  echo "MONIT-WRAPPER --------------------------------------------"
} >>/tmp/monit.log 2>&1


but what i don't understand is if i get rid of the wrapper script in the start program, the program does not start or only partially starts.

so this doesn't work:

start program "/usr/bin/sudo /fusionone/bin/f1 -v start" with timeout 170 seconds

but this does:

start program "/usr/bin/sudo /fusionone/bin/ /fusionone/bin/f1 -v start" with timeout 170 seconds


thank you,
