Yes MadHatter. Basically I want to know was it started just now (5 seconds) or some time ago. Its to check that the restart command actually ran.

comment Monit and Varnish
that has worked perfectly. Now on to the overarching issue. Any ideas on why Varnish's init may not work for me?

comment Effectively managing crontab
this still fails, or rather does nothing, I am using 38 * * * * run-parts /var/www/cron/cron.hourly then in /var/www/cron/cron.hourly I have a file called test which just does touch /var/www/cron.txt. Any ideas?

This seems to be a user that the cron is trying to run as, but my cron is run as www-data and not root. Changing root to www-data still fails with /bin/sh: www-data: not found

Hmmm, I have set it up and the only output I am getting via email is /bin/sh: root: not found

comment Effectively managing crontab
Thanks! Just for clarification, the folder /etc/cron.hourly already exists, does this mean I still need to add 01 * * * * root run-parts /etc/cron.hourly to my crontab? Or does it's existence mean that crontab is already aware of it and it'll be run anyway?
