Branch: CURRENT, Version: 5.8nb1, Package name: monit-5.8nb1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Monit is a utility for managing and monitoring, processes, files,
directories and devices on a UNIX system. Monit conducts automatic
maintenance and repair and can execute meaningful causal actions in
error situations.

Add SHA512 digests for distfiles for sysutils category

Problems found with existing digests:
	Package memconf distfile memconf-2.16/memconf.gz

	95748686a5ad8144232f4d4abc9bf052721a196f [calculated]

Problems found locating distfiles:
	Package dc-tools: missing distfile dc-tools/abs0-dc-burn-netbsd-1.5-0-gae55ec9
	Package ipw-firmware: missing distfile ipw2100-fw-1.2.tgz

	Package nvnet: missing distfile nvnet-netbsd-src-20050620.tgz
	Package syslog-ng: missing distfile syslog-ng-3.7.2.tar.gz

Otherwise, existing SHA1 digests verified and found to be the same on
the machine holding the existing distfiles (morden).  All existing
SHA1 digests retained for now as an audit trail.

Log message:
Updated monit to version 5.8

Version 5.8

New: Monit no longer purge the environment for sub-processes

New: Add command line option to view Monit ID (-i/--id)

New: Add command line option to reset Monit ID (-r/--resetid)

New: Add client support for using TLS version 1.1 and 1.2. A recent
1.x version of OpenSSL is required and of course that the server
speaks this TLS version. At this time, not many does. Example:
if failed port 443 with type TCPSSL tlsv11 protocol http  then alert

New: Process UID, EUID and GID tests. Allows to test if the
process is running as a given user. Example:
    check process syslog with pidfile /var/run/rsyslogd.pid
        if failed uid  "syslog" then alert
        if failed euid "syslog" then alert
        if failed gid  "syslog" then alert

New: Add WebSocket protocol test support for port check. Example:
    check host websocket.org with address "echo.websocket.org"
        if failed
           port 80 protocol websocket
           host "echo.websocket.org"
           request "/"
           origin "http://www.websocket.com"
           version 13
        then alert

New: Simplified HTTP protocol test to allow testing content without
creating an URL object. It is now possible to say in a more natural way,
 check host mmonit.com with address mmonit.com
       if failed
          port 80 protocol http
          and request /monit/ with content = "Monit 5.7"
       then alert
meaning that if the page mmonit.com/monit does not contain the text
"Monit 5.7" then the test will fail. To reverse the test, i.e. to test
that the page should not contain a specific string simply use '!='
instead, like,
    if failed
       port 80 protocol http
       with content != "Nagios"
    then alert
Remember also that the string to test can be a regular expression

New: The HTTP protocol test now support testing the HTTP status code
returned by the server by using "status <operator> <number>".
Backward compatible defaults (return error if status >= 400):
    if failed
       port 80 protocol http
       and status < 400
    then alert
Return error if a page DOES exist (for success 404 is expected):
    if failed
       port 80 protocol http
       request "/non/existent.php"
       status = 404
    then alert

Fixed: Unix Socket test now use the communication type (TCP or UDP)
specified in port statement. Previously TCP was always used.

Fixed: Improved test to check if a socket was connected. Since we use
non-blocking connect, we now poll a few ms to avoid "connection failed,
XXX is not ready for i|o" errors which could occur, especially on high
latency networks or long distance connect.

Fixed: Simplified if-statements reported in UI

Fixed: Ignore lines starting with '#' in an 'allow htpasswd' file
statement. Thanks to Michael Bakker for reporting the issue

Fixed: Show service restart program on Monit startup in debug mode.
Thanks to Michael Bakker for reporting the issue

Version 5.7

New: Merged https://bitbucket.org/tildeslash/monit/pull-request/1/
from Philippe Kueck:
1) Handle sockets (unix domain) as regular files when checking timestamp.
2) Use mysql 4.1 protocol in MySQL check, required for checking mysql-proxy
3) Skip connection checks during startup timeout.

New: Arguments added to 'check program'. Arguments are whitespace
separated strings. For instance:

  check program list-files with path "/bin/ls -l -r -t /tmp"
        if status != 0 then alert

New: Implemented restart as an optional service action. When Monit
is called to restart a service, it previously called the stop
program registered with the service and then the start program.
Now, if a restart program is registred with the service, this
will be called instead, otherwise Monit fall back to its old
behaviour. Example:

  check process apache with pidfile /var/run/httpd.pid
        start   = "/usr/sbin/apachectl start"
        stop    = "/usr/sbin/apachectl stop"
        restart = "/usr/sbin/apachectl restart" <- New

New: Improved communication with M/Monit. Thanks to Hippo Lin. For
scalability purpose, this Monit version should only be used with
M/Monit version 3.1 or later.


* Monit stopped if an error occurred during MTA connection close.
* Make the Memcache protocol test faster.
* Solaris zone: fix system memory usage report.
* Use chiper list with SSL server instead of relying on default

Log message:
Remove example rc.d scripts from PLISTs.

These are now handled dynamically if INIT_SYSTEM is set to "rc.d", or
ignored otherwise.
