comment cause for mysql crash
Yep, can't figure out why. I use ping to test the connection. Perhaps it failed or timed out.. Thanks for your other help. I should have picked up on the date and times in the log file entries.

comment cause for mysql crash
Thank you John!! Actually, the very last line of my log file that would follow what I pasted above does show this message 'A mysqld process already exists at Sat Dec 15 06:20:56 PST 2012' SO, my email wasn't queue and was sent at the correct time; rather, my DB up cron job might have a bug or something... strange, except the script has been running the last few years (every 5 min). Perhaps maybe it was just a fleeting system quirk.

Yes, the server did crash that day and time.. rather Rackspace virtualization layer crashed.

comment cause for mysql crash
Wait, where I'm getting confused - I received an email alert this morning that my mysqld was restarted by a cron job.. so I assumed those entries related to the restart this morning. I guess not - that's for earlier in the week. Now I have to figure out why my mysqld log file doesn't show an issue or why an email was sent this AM. The email does't seem to be queued since 12/12... nor the mysql log files have entries regarding a restart.. WEIRD!!!

Yes, the server did crash earlier on 12/12/2012 11:22:11AM (ET). Well, really the RackSpace virtual layer went into some read-only mode. I restarted the server... but server app only became accessible after Rackspace fixed their issue. I guess that caused the initial corruption? But I restarted it.. during the RS outage

Happened for the first time (in 2 and half years). I'm on a RackSpace cloud server with 512MB ram. Would 'crash recovery' have attempted to repair corrupted tables.. perhaps why app is now working. please advise

I'm not sure what happened or what those numbers mean. Machine seems to be fine. app seems to be (create, update, delete, read data). Any other thoughts?

comment Monit configuration for Apache, MySQL, and Postfix
I found one enhancement: in Apache config, delete "protocol http" since I didn't care to monitor HTTP status code (if apache returns 403, monit throws a "connection error" even though web server is running). My server doesn't have a website yet.

comment Monit configuration for Apache, MySQL, and Postfix
Sorry, I'm new to Monit. Is timeout directive essentially unmonitoring, or instead does monit timeout monitoring the service for a certain number of cycles? If the former, how is this different from the unmonitor directive?
