This updates the version of monit for rhel6 to 5.3.1
This is an update to an existing EPEL6 package, so we don't need a review request - moving to the Fedora EPEL product and monit component
I'm not sure what you want us to do. As Mark already said, this is not a new package, and it is actively maintained, so a rr is not necessary.
Also, if I consider this an update request, updating to 5.3.1 seems a bit odd, since it is not the most recent version, so why not 5.3.2, 5.4 or 5.5.
Updating packages in EPEL can be done, but usually a bit reluctantly. Is there some feature you are missing in the 5.1.1 that is currently in EPEL? Did you mean this to be a rr or an update request?
This certainly was the wrong place to put this request. While I am not against upgrading the package to >5.3 I was looking to at least upgrade it to the version available for f17.
The feature that we desire to have is procmatch functionality
From the monit README
* Added the "procmatch" CLI command which allows for easy testing
of pattern for process match check. The command takes regular
expression as an argument and displays all running processes
matching the pattern. Example usage:
$ monit procmatch "iChatAgent"
So I guest that this would actually be an update request instead of a rr.
It would be great to upgrade Monit >5.3.1, last upstream version being 5.8.1. Monit above 5.3.1 fix memory usage monitoring in OpenVZ VPS and supports mysql test for version 5.5. We use a lot Monit in OpenVZ CentOS 6 containers and this fix would be much appreciated.
Anyway we can get this updated to the latest version 5.14?
I've queued an update for Monit 5.14 on F21-23, rawhide, EL6 and EL7.
