A few days ago I posted a message about creating a pid file for linbpq. So that it becomes possible to monitor the process with watchdog.
Now I use Monit to display this graphically. Why, because it looks nice. Now you immediately have an overview of running processes and their status.
The configuration file that I use for this.
## Start Monit in the background (run as a daemon): # set daemon 300 # check services at 5-minute intervals set logfile /var/log/monit.log set pidfile /var/run/monit.pid set idfile /var/lib/monit/id set statefile /var/lib/monit/state set httpd port 2812 use address 192.168.1.168 allow 192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0 allow admin:pancake set mailserver localhost # primary mailserver set eventqueue basedir /var/lib/monit/events # set the base directory where events will be stored slots 100 # optionally limit the queue size set alert email@example.com # receive all alerts check system $HOST if loadavg (1min) > 4 then alert if loadavg (5min) > 2 then alert if cpu usage > 95% for 10 cycles then alert if memory usage > 75% then alert if swap usage > 25% then alert check process Linbpq with pidfile /home/pd9q/linbpq/run/linbpq.pid if changed pid then alert check file bpq32.cfg with path /home/pd9q/linbpq/bpq32.cfg check process Direwolf with pidfile /home/pd9q/linbpq/run/direwolf.pid if changed pid then alert check file direwolf.conf with path /home/pd9q/linbpq/direwolf.conf check host Router with address 192.168.1.1 if failed ping then alert check network Eth0 with interface eth0 if failed link then alert if changed link then alert if saturation > 90% then alert if download > 10 MB/s then alert if total uploaded > 1 GB in last hour then alert check host Packet-radio.net with address packet-radio.net if failed icmp type echo count 5 with timeout 15 seconds then alert if failed port 80 proto http then alert if failed port 443 type TCPSSL proto http then alert alert firstname.lastname@example.org include /etc/monit/conf.d/* include /etc/monit/conf-enabled/*
