I'm trying to configure Monit to monitor my pidfile. I had no problem except for one. this is what I configured:
check process chat with pidfile /var/run/chat.pid start program = "/etc/init.d/chat start" start program = "/etc/init.d/chat stop"
this is the process I have when I start chat with /etc/init.d/chat:
ps -ef | grep chat root 17659 1 0 19:23 pts/2 00:00:00 /usr/bin/php -q /usr/statistic/chatManager root 17662 17659 0 19:23 pts/2 00:00:00 /usr/bin/php -q /usr/statistic/chatManager
this is what I see in the monit log file:
when I start the process:
[GMT Mar 21 19:23:51] info : 'chat' process is running with pid 17659
when I stop the process:
**[GMT Mar 21 19:23:11] error : monit: Start or stop method not defined -- process chat**
any suggestions? thanks!! E.
