Monit is a utility for managing and monitoring processes, files,
directories, and devices on a Unix system. It conducts automatic
maintenance and repair and can execute meaningful causal actions in error
situations. It can be used to monitor files, directories, and devices for
changes, such as timestamps changes, checksum changes, or size changes. It
is controlled via an easy to configure control file based on a free-format,
token-oriented syntax. It logs to syslog or to its own log file and
notifies users about error conditions via customizable alert messages. It
can perform various TCP/IP network checks, protocol checks, and can
utilize SSL for such checks. It provides an HTTP(S) interface for access.
A crash in logging introduced in 4.8 for Opteron based platforms was fixed.
This release will not exit if there is no space on the filesystem where the
monit state file is stored. The false warning when using the TOTALMEMORY
statement on Linux has been removed.
