Running Monit 5.4 on an Ubuntu server. When I use
monit reload, it seems that it restarts monitored services (Tomcat 7 in this situation). Is it the expected behavior? Documentation says :
reload - Reinitialize a running Monit daemon, the daemon will reread its configuration, close and reopen log files.
I would expect it not to restart any service but only reload it's configuration, this way I could change email alerts and other stuffs.
This is the output of
The Monit daemon 5.4 uptime: 15h 0m Process 'tomcat7' status Running monitoring status Monitored pid 38842 parent pid 1 uptime 14h 30m children 0 memory kilobytes 3445964 memory kilobytes total 3445964 memory percent 10.4% memory percent total 10.4% cpu percent 14.8% cpu percent total 14.8% port response time 0.018s to localhost:80 [HTTP via TCP] data collected Tue, 17 Jun 2014 15:39:36 System 'mytiny.company.net' status Running monitoring status Monitored load average [0.32] [0.49] [0.57] cpu 15.5%us 0.2%sy 0.0%wa memory usage 8217684 kB [25.0%] swap usage 14980 kB [0.7%] data collected Tue, 17 Jun 2014 15:39:36
And this is the Tomcat monitoring configuration in
# Tomcat check process tomcat7 with pidfile /var/run/tomcat7.pid start program = "/etc/init.d/tomcat7 restart" stop program = "/etc/init.d/tomcat7 stop" if cpu > 60% for 2 cycles then alert if cpu > 80% for 5 cycles then restart if failed port 80 and protocol http then restart if 5 restarts within 5 cycles then timeout
Rest of the file is default, except the check interval that is 60s. Tomcat do runs on 80 port.
