I have the following resource:

primitive WowzaMediaServer lsb:WowzaMediaServer \
        op monitor interval="30s" timeout="60" \
        op start interval="0" timeout="60" \
        op stop interval="0"

I would like to understand what does "monitor Interval" and "timeout" mean.

This means:

Monitor (i.e. check its status) the lsb service WowzaMediaServer every 30 seconds and timeout after 60 seconds.
