[Slightly OT] backgroundrb monit config

Anyone have a a good monit config section for backgroundrb?

I'm thinking something like this:

check process backgroundrb with pidfile
/var/www/apps/foo/current/log/backgroundrb.pid
  start program = "/var/www/apps/foo/current/script/backgroundrb start"
  stop program = "/var/www/apps/foo/current/script/backgroundrb stop"
  if failed host 127.0.0.1 port 2000 then restart
  if 5 restarts within 5 cycles then timeout

Problem is the port test fails - I thought 2000 is the default...

Thanks,

Zack-

  It depends on what version fo the plugin you are using. The 0.2.x branch uses 2000 by default *but* it also uses unix domain sockets by default. So it really is not listening on any port, its using socket files to do its communicating. I havent gotten monit port checking to work with bdrb so I just monito it for memory and cpu and uptime.

Ezra,

  Thanks - I had read about 0.2.x using domain sockets but had
promptly forgot when updating my monit config.

Thanks,
