Anyone know of a config file generator or templating system for monit? I created my own scripts to run from cron that would detect items to be monitored dynamically.
For example, if someone installs a new package like mariadb on a server, the script would detect the PID file or use "monit procmatch" to create/update /etc/monit.d/mariadb.cfg. Or if someone creates a new /etc/swatch.d/example.conf then add/update the /etc/monit.d/swatch.cfg.
This dynamic updating capability is very useful. Maybe this could be done with a simple verb option that would allow for something like "depends on" but doesn't cause an error. This would simple not load sections and their dependents when a check fails.
check process mariadb_proc with path /var/run/mariadb.pid
active when exec "/bin/rpm -q mariadb-server"
check file mariadb_my_cnf with path /etc/my.cnf
depends on mariadb_proc
Then the first process won't load when the package isn't installed and the second file won't error because it depends on the first. I don't want to use the unmonitor and have a hundred items in the "monitor summary" output.
Also, I scripted a generator for /etc/monit.d/filesystems.cfg that will automatically monitor all local filesystems with different thresholds based on the size of the volume. Smaller filesystems will get the standard 90% used threshold but larger ones in the hundreds of GBs or TBs will hae a 95% or 98% threshold
